A bomb threat made to a business in Lake Forest Friday morning prompted the evacuation of the business and a soft lockdown at Lake Forest High School, police said.
Lake Forest Police Department Deputy Chief Rob Copeland said officers received a call around 10 a.m. regarding a reported bomb threat made to a business in Lake Forest.
The business was evacuated out of an abundance of caution.
Information provided to police initially indicated the suspect was living at a residence next to Lake Forest High School, Copeland said.
It was later determined the suspect was not at the location that was initially provided.
The threat was also determined to not be credible.
Detectives were able to identify the caller behind the threat and eventually trace the suspect to a location in Waukegan, Copeland said.
Police determined there is no threat to the public. The suspect’s identity has not been publicly released.
Detectives are continuing to investigate the incident for criminal charges.
