Colorado law enforcement reexamining if disgraced social worker connected to phony bomb threat: Report

Law enforcement officials in Colorado are reportedly re-examining a false bomb threat made in Arapahoe County to determine if a former social worker – who has been accused of fabricating reports against dozens of parents to tear families apart – played any role in the phony threat.

“It’s a very big deal, we’ve known about it since May when our investigation started,” Arapahoe County Sheriff’s Office spokesperson Ginger Delgado told CBS Colorado of the office being aware of the bomb threat case.

Multiple law enforcement sources told the outlet that authorities are revisiting the bomb threat made in January at the Arapahoe County Department of Human Services. Former social worker for the agency, Robin Niceta, was the first person to report the phony threat, according to CBS Colorado.

Niceta resigned from her position as a social worker for the Arapahoe County Department of Human Services in May when accusations of misconduct mounted against her and she was ultimately arrested on charges of retaliation against an elected official and making a false report.
