Investigation Continues into Vestal JCC Threat
No arrests have been reported in connection with a bomb threat received by the Jewish Community Center in Vestal four weeks ago.
Law enforcement agencies are continuing to investigate the January 31 threat in Broome County, along with dozens of others directed at Jewish institutions over the past two months.
Another wave of bomb threats was reported Monday by several Jewish community centers and day schools in the United States, according to the JCC Association of North America.
Some of the latest threats were directed against sites in New York and Pennsylvania.
Representatives of the JCC of Binghamton were not available to comment Monday afternoon. But Vestal police Lieutenant Christopher Streno said no additional threats directed against the facility on Clubhouse Road had been reported.
Streno said a local FBI agent responded to the Vestal center last month after the telephoned threat had been received. Town and state police found nothing suspicious during a search of the building.
Streno said police have been working with the Jewish Community Center and representatives of other organizations in the town to develop a protocol for handling threats.
