Crime Stoppers 5/8

Police need our help finding the person responsible for a bomb threat in Boone County.

You might remember last Wednesday deputies got a call about a suspicious device that looked like a bomb on Ashfield Road. It was attached to a house under construction.

Residents evacuated their homes while the Winnebago county bomb squad investigated the device. The squad detonated it with little damage. It was not considered to be a valid explosive.

If you have any information, call Boone County Crime Stoppers.
