No threat found after Cache lockdown

CACHE  Officials of the Cache Police Department reported Thursday that no major threat could be confirmed in connection with two calls received by Cache Public Schools Wednesday that led to a lockdown of school campuses Wednesday afternoon.

Jared Johnsgard, Cache assistant police chief, released a statement Thursday afternoon concerning the situation on behalf of Police Chief Donna Kimmel.

"Nothing can be confirmed that a viable threat was made by anyone," he said. "The person of interest was where she said she was, visiting family members in Kansas."

Johnsgard said that person of interest, a Cache woman, did visit with Kimmel Thursday morning about the allegation.

"It appears to be a he said/she said situation," said Rick Trilo, an investigator for the Cache Police Department.

Johnsgard said it appeared the situation had a "snowball" effect based on many people putting different information together. He said the matter has been referred to Comanche County District Attorney for possible further action, if necessary.

"We are still investigating a possible threat made internally within her family," he said. "Some aspects of the school incident are still under investigation but it's doubtful anything will become of it."
