Albuquerque Police say the Jewish Community Center on Wyoming Boulevard near Spain Road was evacuated Tuesday morning while teams investigated a bomb threat that was called in. 


APD confirms that the APD Bomb Squad cleared the Center and nothing was found. The Center was re-opened.

The Albuquerque threat was one of several threats made against Jewish Community Centers Tuesday, including centers in Whitefish Bay, Wisconsin; Albany, New York; Woodbridge, Connecticut;  San Diego, California; and Boulder, Colorado.

APD could not confirm that they knew about other threats called in nationwide while investigating this threat.

One member of the Albuquerque center says she isn't shocked.

"I lived in Israel. I know what it's like to be around bomb threats," said Shoshana Dubman.  "I'm not surprised that it's happening here and I'm cautious wherever I go."

Officials from the Center say this is the first bomb threat they've received in their 16 years here in the Metro.
