Police are investigating multiple bomb threats made at schools and hospitals in several Northern Michigan counties.

It’s believed these threats may have been made to throw off police during a bank robbery in Ogemaw County.

This whole situation started with threats made to schools and hospitals in Ogemaw, Roscommon, Iosco and Crawford counties.

Police say there is no reason to believe any of these threats are credible.

The Ogemaw County sheriff says the same number has been used in all of these threats.

State police are looking for a black truck.

They believe the truck is connected to the threats and a bank robbery in Rose City.

The sheriff says the Mercantile Bank was robbed Friday morning.

Details on the robbery are still extremely limited.

It’s not clear how much money, if any was taken or if a weapon was involved.

If you have any information or recognize the suspects’ black truck, call the West Branch MSP post at 989-345-0956.
