Jewish Community Center here among those receiving bomb threats Wednesday

Bomb sniffing dogs with St. Louis County Police Department were dispatched to the Jewish Community Center at 2 Millstone Campus Drive following a bomb threat Wednesday morning, authorities said.

"Our department responded at approximately 9 a.m. to the JCC in relation to a call for a bomb threat," said Benjamin Granda, police spokesman. "It was reported that an email was sent to the JCC some time last night. Officers, along with K9's arrived on the scene and began their protective sweep. We also sent officers to the Chesterfield location to do the same thing."

The facility was not evacuated and remained open, according to a staff person. The worker said four facilities in the U.S. received the threat.

Granda said the Federal Bureau of Investigations will take over the investigation.
