Probe Continues Into Bomb Threat
RIVERTON, Wyo. (AP) — Authorities are still investigating a bomb threat which canceled a meeting to discuss alleged problems at the Eastern Shoshone Housing Authority.
About 110 people gathered for the General Council meeting at Rocky Mountain Hall in Fort Washakie were evacuated because of the threat on May 12.
FBI spokesman Dave Joly told The (Riverton) Ranger (http://bit.ly/LiJ3JU ) that no device was found.
Tribal members signed a petition calling for the meeting because of concerns with the housing authority. Housing authority officials say the petition was circulated because of bitterness over the firing of previous board members.
Five managers were terminated after a General Council meeting in February 2010.
