Bomb threat made at Riverside business

The Kansas City Police Department Bomb Squad and Arson Squad went to a Riverside business last week after threats were made by a former subcontractor at Velociti, Inc.

On Thursday, Oct. 26, Riverside police officers responded to the business due to verbal threats made at the business, located at 4780 Northwest 41st Street, Suite 500.

The former employee spoke with officers, who called for medical attention due to the suspect’s possible altered state.

He was transported to a local hospital, where he continued to make threats and indicated there were explosives and other bomb-making material inside his vehicle, which was still parked at Velociti.

After a lengthy search and investigation, no bombs or bomb-making material was found.

No charges have been filed for the alleged threats made.
