  • Employees of the Probation and Parole office in Hannibal received an unexpected break from work Friday morning when the building was evacuated after a threat was made against the facility.
    According to Hannibal police, at 9:54 a.m. Marion County 911 received a call stating there was a bomb in the building located at 2002 Warren Barrett Dr.
    During a search of the building, approximately 25 people congregated at the edge of a parking lot west of the Community Supervision Center.
    One member of the Probation and Parole staff called out to me from across Warren Barrett Drive, “You can come over, but I can’t tell you anything.”
    A worker from a nearby towing business sat in the shade of a tree and observed the scene.
    “I don’t know what’s going on,” said a woman who lives nearby.
    At least one passing motorist pulled in and inquired about what was transpiring.
    According to police, a search of the building and grounds turned up no explosive devices. At 10:40 a.m. employees and visitors to the facility could be seen going back inside.
    In a media release, Lt. John Zerbonia indicated that the incident remains under investigation.
