Detectives have found no further evidence that the October 4th threat to Thornton Jr. High School was credible.

On October 4, 2019,  Fremont Police and Fire responded to Thornton Jr. High due the threat of a bomb.  The threat was made via email and sent to a school faculty member.  After evacuating all students, officers conducted a thorough search of the campus.  Nothing suspicious was located on the campus and the anonymous email threat was turned over to detectives.  Since the incident occurred, detectives have not found any additional evidence to believe the threat was legitimate.   Additional steps were taken to trace the origin of the email, however we have concluded that it came from an untraceable account. 

While the vast majority of these types of anonymous threats turn out to be hoaxes, they are taken seriously and investigated to the fullest extent of the law.  If anyone has information they believe would assist detectives in this investigation, please contact the Fremont Police Investigative Unit at 510-790-6900.  We also accept anonymous tips for non-urgent information. Text TIP FREMONTPD followed by your message to 888-777, or via the web at  We’d like to thank FUSD for their ongoing partnership and assistance during this incident.
