The Rome Police Department responded to a bomb threat at the Griffiss Business and Technology Park this afternoon.

The Observer-Dispatch is reporting the threat was phoned into the Assured Information Security building just after 2:00.  It was later learned the threat was e-mailed.

Crews are currently on the scene conducting a sweep of the AIS building.

We'll bring you more information as it becomes available.
