NORFOLK, Va. — The Navy is offering a $2,500 reward for information leading to an arrest in a series of bomb threats that have disrupted operations last week in Virginia.
The Virginian-Pilot reports that the Naval Criminal Investigative Service is increasing the offered reward from $500 to $2,500.
On Thursday, a bomb threat was written on a bathroom wall at Norfolk Naval Shipyard in Portsmouth.
The bomb threats were determined not to be credible.
Operations were also interrupted in Norfolk on Monday, when a sailor reported seeing a trespassing scuba diver. The sighting proved unfounded.
