No Explosives Found, Suspect Identified in Bomb Evacuation

Ft. Sanders Road Evacuation, July 11, 2013

No explosives were found during a bomb scare that caused an evacuation South of Laramie, Thursday.

Bomb teams were called out Thursday morning to an area of Albany County just south of Laramie, after reports were received that a vehicle there was possibly rigged with explosives.

Albany County Undersheriff Rob DeBree says that although no explosives were found, appearances of the suspected vehicle were such to cause significant concern among investigators and bomb technicians.  This concern was cause for both an initial evacuation of the area as well as, later, an expansion of that evacuation area.

Further, DeBree adds, the Albany County Sheriff’s Office has identified a suspect in the case.  The suspect is said to be currently out-of-state and, DeBree says, is not considered to currently pose a threat.

The suspect’s name has not been released.

The incident occurred at a towing company storage yard just South of Laramie.  The suspect vehicle is said to have been towed there from the interstate.

The case is being investigated as “terroristic threats” and is ongoing.

According to Wyoming Statute, a person is guilty of a terroristic threat if he “threatens to commit any violent felony with the intent to cause evacuation of a building, place of assembly or facility of public transportation, or otherwise to cause serious public inconvenience, or in reckless disregard of the risk of causing such inconvenience.”

A terroristic threat is a felony punishable by imprisonment for not more than three years.
