Traffic in and out of the Mary Gran Nursing Center in Clinton was diverted Wednesday morning after administrators in the building discovered two threatening notes in separate places in the building.
According to reports from the Clinton Police Department, the notes were found around 11:30 a.m. — one placed on a time clock; the other in the Nourishment Room of the facility, located at 120 Southwood Drive.
One of the notes stated that a ‘bullet’ was waiting for two employees in the building.The second note, found in the Nourishment Room, stated that five bombs were placed around the building and were slated to go off at 2 p.m. that afternoon.
Nothing occurred at the facility, police said, and no injuries were reported.
Although a phone call and message to Mary Gran administrator Neil Ivey was not immediately returned Thursday, investigators said no harm came to any of the residents at the facility.
“The fire department and EMS were called out,” noted Detective Donald Edwards. “We had officers and facility personnel scan the building and roof for any type of devices. None were found.”
Edwards said that officials at Mary Gran took all the right measures to protect the safety of the residents of the facility.
“They found the notes and immediately took action,” he said.
An investigation is under way as police search for the individual or individuals responsible for placing the two notes in the nursing center. If you have any information on this incident, call the Clinton Police Department’s anonymous tip line at 910-590-3009.
