NYC synagogue bomb threats found to be fake, officials say

Multiple bomb threats were made against synagogues in New York City on Saturday, according to the New York City Police Department.

New York officials said the threats were unfounded, and investigators are working to find whoever was responsible.

Schumer and Rep. Jerry Nadler held a press conference Sunday morning, saying they had spoken with the FBI about the ongoing investigation.

“I asked them to make every effort to track down who did this,” Schumer said. “It’s hard to do, because those who do it can often hide where their email is coming from, where their phone calls are coming from, in either case. But the FBI has had good success, it takes time, and they are able to track many of these bad people who do this kind of activity down and then go after them.”
