Some tense hours in Altus
yesterday after a student reportedly found a note that included a bomb threat
in a bathroom at Ozark Middle School
just before noon on Friday. 40/29 TV news in Fort Smith reports that the students were evacuated to a nearby Junior High School campus while officers and a bomb-sniffing dog from the University of Arkansas at Fayetteville searched the school. No explosives were found following the 3-1/2 hour search, and investigators are currently reviewing surveillance footage to try and find a culprit.
