Bomb Threat Closes Front Street, U.S. Hwy 2 in Leavenworth

Much of downtown Leavenworth was closed late Thursday afternoon due to a bomb threat.

The emergency shutdown affected portions of Front and Whitman Streets, as well as U.S. Highway 2.

Officials with the Chelan County Sheriff’s Office report that several threats were made within a brief span around 5:00 p.m. but have released no other details about the incident.

Investigators worked the scene for several hours before lifting the closure and a subsequent shelter in place order just before 9:00.

Sheriff’s Office officials say they are still working to identify any potential suspects.
