Bangor police investigate hoax bomb threat call


Just before 6 p.m. Monday, someone whose voice apparently was disguised called in a bomb threat to the Hope House, a shelter for people struggling with drugs and alcohol, Bangor police Sgt. Paul Edwards said Tuesday.

“They did evacuate,” he said. “We went out and searched the building” on Indiana Avenue and found nothing.

Edwards said police have determined that the bomb threat, made at 5:55 p.m., was a hoax. No arrests have been made, he said.

Hope House, formerly called the Acadia Recovery Community, or ARC, is a 64-bed emergency homeless shelter operated by Penobscot Community Health Care. (Nok-Noi Ricker, BDN)
