On 09.20.2013 at 1731 hours the Northern York County Regional Police Department responded to an active bomb threat at a business in the 3100 block of Carlisle Road in Dover Township.

Upon arrival Officers found that the subjects making the threat were still on the phone with the business manager.  The business was evacuated and searched by police officers.

The subject on the phone had a strong middle eastern accent and advised that his group was a splinter group of Al-Qaeda and that a bomb had been planted in the business.  The caller demanded that Green Dot prepaid Visa and Mastercard debit cards be activated with a specific sum of money or he would detonate the bomb.

A NYCRPD Patrol Supervisor got on the phone with the subject and identified himself.  The Supervisor then requested to speak to the caller’s supervisor.  Another male voice came on the line.  This male also had a heavy middle eastern accent.  The second subject hung up the phone after a brief conversation with the NYCRPD Supervisor.

The NYCRPD is currently working to trace the call.  The FBI has been briefed on the incident.

The investigation into this incident continues.  Anyone with information is asked to contact the Northern York County Regional Police Department at 717.292.3647 or use the crime tip reporting portion of this website.
