Bomb threat from suspect in Maryland prompts closure of Delaware park, police say

A police cruiser sits near the entrance of Glasgow Park, which was closed on the morning of May 10 due to a suspicious package. 

A park in Delaware remains closed due to an ongoing investigation involving a bomb threat from an out-of-state suspect. 

According to the New Castle County Police Department, officers received information about a suspicious package left in Glasgow Park overnight. 


Officials say Maryland State Police received information that a suspect placed an unknown explosive device in the park. 

New Castle County Police say patrol officers immediately responded and established a permitter around the park. 

The park remains closed as officers from multiple jurisdictions search the 250-acre property, according to police. 

"The Division understands Glasgow Park is a popular destination for county residents and we appreciate their patience as we work diligently to ensure their safety," police said. 

Authorities say the park will reopen when the park is deemed safe.
