The e-mail also mentioned that a recruited “mercenary” was watching the building and was ready to explode the bomb if law enforcement was called. Nevada County Sheriff’s Lieutenant Rob Bringolf says the other threat was received at the Rood Center, where the Sheriff’s Department is also locatedā€¦

Matteoni says since the Grass Valley Police Department was already aware of the hoax they were able to immediately tell people at the other three locations that they would not need to evacuate.
