Harley York Plant Evacuated Due to Bomb Threat
Law enforcement determined no immediate threat, but continue to investigate the situation.
Employees at the Harley-Davidson plant in York, Pennsylvania faced a frightening situation Wednesday. A bomb threat was reported to York Country 911 shortly after 12pm, leading to all employees being evacuated.
Harley-Davidson issued a statement about the incident: “Harley-Davidson contacted local police to investigate a bomb threat. In the interest of employee safety—which is always our highest priority—we have evacuated all employees from the York facility and asked employees to leave for the day. We continue to work with local authorities, who are investigating the threat. We will update you when we have more information.”
York Daily Record reported that plant was cleared by the afternoon by law enforcement as well as the K-9 unit. Sargeant Brian Wilbur said that Springettsbury Township Police will continue to investigate the threat. Wilbur said this incident seems to be a first, with no prior bomb threats reported by H-D previously.
Let’s hope this is just a harmless prank. But we will update should any other details emerge.
