A Tuesday night bomb threat was directed at the Natrona County Sheriff’s Office, a sheriff’s office spokesman said Thursday.

The threat is similar to other threats made nationwide, Sgt. Aaron Shatto said. He said the call originated out of state and the sheriff’s office is investigating the case in conjunction with several other agencies, including the Federal Bureau of Investigation.

The sheriff’s office has identified a “person of interest,” but Shatto said he could not publicly name that person yet.

The Teton County Sheriff’s recently responded to a similar threat, Shatto said.

Shatto said no other threats were made locally. There is no reason to believe anyone is at immediate risk of harm in relation to the threat, he said.

The threat was called in around 7:35 p.m. Tuesday, and a house in the 1500 block of South Walnut Street was searched by the sheriff’s bomb response team, Shatto said. No explosives were located.

Shatto had declined to specify Wednesday to whom the threat was directed.
