JCPD: FBI no longer investigating threatening letters sent to Comcast

JOHNSON CITY, TN (WJHL) – The FBI is no longer involved with the investigation into threatening letters that shut down three Comcast locations earlier this month, according to Johnson City Police Department Capt. Mike Street.

JCPD has since asked the U.S. Postal Service if it will help with the investigation. Capt. Street says investigators are still waiting to hear back from USPS.

In the meantime, he says JCPD’s investigation has not turned up any suspects so far.

Comcast closed its offices in Gray as well as Norton and Galax, VA earlier this month.

According to Capt. Street, the investigation was sparked by letters sent by mail and addressed to certain Comcast employees. Capt. Street says those letters warned of explosives in a Comcast office and a Comcast vehicle; threats that were determined to be unfounded by JCPD’s bomb squad.

Police say while they wait to hear back from the USPS they are still trying to interview additional people.
