A Bomb Threat at Lands Department in Belmopan

A bomb threat was reported around noon today in Belmopan, at the offices of the Ministry of Natural Resources.  Members of staff alerted the authorities that several calls were received insinuating that an explosive device had been planted inside the building.  Belmopan police immediately responded along with a team of officers from the K-nine Unit where an initial sweep of the compound was conducted.  A secondary search was also carried out by the Belize Defense Force.  The building was declared safe around two-thirty this afternoon and work resumed shortly thereafter.
