Earlier this morning the ITC building was evacuated due to bomb threats made to the Office of Attorney General.
According to the office of Guam Homeland Security and Civil Defense – at around 8 am they had received a notification of a reported bomb threat made at the ITC Building.
Both the Guam Police and Fire Department were on scene and both patrons and staff were evacuated.
In a statement to PNC – Angelo Paule an Assistant for the Taipei Economic and Cultural Office in Guam, which is one of many agencies that occupy the building, reported that upon arrival at around 8:55 am he had noticed that GPD had surrounded the building by then and that they were ushering people out of the building.
When he asked one of the officers what was going on, he was told to stand clear of the building – and that GFD arrived shortly after.
Guam Homeland Security then issued the all-clear at 10:10 am after the reported bomb threat had been made and the building then resumed normal operations.
GHS reports that no credible threat was found upon assessments and that all measures were taken to ensure the safety of the school – the public and all responders involved. And that that will be the final statement provided unless additional information is received.
