In the early hours of Sept. 20, police on both sides of the Ohio River shut down access to the Roebling Suspension Bridge to assess a bomb threat called into local law enforcement.
The Roebling was cleared of any danger about an hour later, but this is the fifth time the bridge was reportedly shut down to investigate a possible threat in just a week.
On Sept. 13, a false bomb threat was called into 911, shutting down the bridge around 5:30 a.m. for about four hours while police investigated. Five days later, during a busy Sunday Bengals home game and Oktoberfest, another threat shut down the bridge. The following day, the Roebling was closed again so police could investigate a suspicious package, which police said just contained bedding. Then another bomb threat was called in the next day.
This would make the second string of bomb threats that local law enforcement has had to hand over to the FBI.
