SAN DIEGO (AP) - The Navy is offering a $5,000 reward for information leading to the arrest of anyone responsible for a series of fake bomb threats made against a San Diego base and nearby shipyards.

Navy spokesman Brian O’Rourke said Friday that since November, eleven fake bomb threats have been made. O’Rourke said many of the threats have been written on porta-potties.

One threat was phoned in Thursday to Naval Base San Diego. The base was not locked down but law enforcement officials were called out and scoured a building before determining it was a hoax.

O’Rourke said the Naval Criminal Investigative Service is investigating. It is not clear yet whether the threats are linked in any way.
