  • Friday, April 15, 1966 — Two bomb threats were investigated today in Las Vegas. One threat was made in a telephone call to Robertson High School. The other was directed to the chief of police. At Robertson, an office worker answered a telephone about 10:25 a.m. and without any preliminaries a person said, “Evacuate the building — there’s a bomb in it,” the worker said.
