CHESTER COUNTY, S.C. — The Chester County Sheriff's Office (CCSO) was investigating a bomb threat made to an area school on social media Monday morning.
According to a post on the CCSO Facebook page, Chester High School, Chester County Career Center and Adult Ed were evacuated while South Carolina Law Enforcement Division (SLED) was called in to do a sweep of the buildings to neutralize any potential threat.
All students and faculty were removed from the buildings and moved to a safe location and the area around the high school was blocked off as a precautionary measure.
Around 12:15 p.m. Monday, the Chester County School District sent home students at Chester High School.
Chester County Sheriff Max Dorsey reported around 2:30 p.m. SLED had cleared the buildings and found no devices.
Classes are expected to resume Tuesday with additional personnel from CCSO at the high school.
