For nearly the past year, someone has left nine bomb threats at the Mesa Library’s main branch. Detective Jerry Gissel of the Mesa Police Department’s Counter-Terrorism Unit said investigators have leads, but have made no arrests.

“Hopefully, we’ll be able to get to the bottom of this,” Gissel said.

The threats began Nov. 7, 2006, in the form of notes, according to a court document.

Gissel said the most recent threat was made in the last three weeks.

The threats have been left in the women’s restroom of the library at 64 E. First St., and one came by phone, but Gissel said police aren’t sure whether the caller is the same person as the one who left the notes.

One message indicated the writer wanted to commit suicide by blowing up the library.

The threats have also caused disruptions when the building had to be evacuated.

Gissel said searches have not found bombs, suspicious packages or anything out of place.
