The Surf City Voice has learned that police and fire officials have blocked off the intersection of 14th and Crest streets to investigate a possible bomb, although they say that they don’t believe at this time that students or others are in any danger or that evacuation will be necessary–from observation by the Voice, the investigation seems little more than a formality but precautions are being taken. “Something suspicious” was noted at one of the schools and is being
investigated, one official said. Officials would not say which school the investigation eminated from or for how long the streets would be blocked off, but they are asking that residents outside of the blocked area stay away and that people who live inside of the area stay in their homes so as not to attract other spectators. Smith school is an elementary school, Dwyer is a middle school and as been the site of a recent controversy and protests over solar panels that are being installed on the front lawn of the school. In the unlikely even that there is an evacuation, a route has been selected, a police official said.
