Jansville, Wis. (WIFR) -- Investigators say bomb threats made on a Rock County resident's Facebook page are not credible.

Police say the resident's Facebook was hacked and used to make the threats.

An unknown person or persons made threats against schools, hospitals, government buildings, and government officials.

Janesville police investigated and decided the threat wasn’t credible.

The owner of the account with the initials J.C. had his account hacked Friday from someone in Iowa. The hacker also posted the owner’s name, address and phone number along with the threat.
