Bomb Threat Results in Evacuation of Greenwich Country Club

On Saturday Greenwich Police responded to a private club on a report of a bomb threat call.

According to Captain Mark Zuccerella, Patrol Division Commander/Press Information Officer, the building was searched with the assistance of other jurisdictions and bomb detection canines.

“No bomb material was located and nothing suspicious was located,” Zuccerella said on Monday.  “No one was injured.”

Zuccerella said there was a private event taking place at the time the call was made. “It is unknown if at this time if the two are related.”

On Saturday night, Greenwich Country Club’s executive committee sent an email to club members saying the front desk had received an anonymous phone call at 1:00pm stating an explosive device was in the building.

“Thanks to the team’s immediate actions, we evacuated the building and the Greenwich Police Dept was onsite within a matter of a few minutes,” they said in the email.

The email said the Stamford Bomb Squad, with the assistance of Greenwich Police Dept, used K-9 bomb specialists to search the clubhouse as well as all satellite buildings for any explosive devices. At 3:00pm, the building had been thoroughly swept and deemed safe by the bomb squad commander.

Zuccerella said the case remains under investigation.
