Marietta Police are busy looking for suspects after five bomb threats were called in to prominent locations in just a little more than 24 hours.

Authorities say Marietta Memorial Hospital, Selby General, Wal-Mart, the Comfort Inn and Marietta College were all targets of these threatening calls that happened Sunday and Monday.

Police said they're in the process of working with telephone companies to trace the calls, but they say the best way to get information is from the public.

"Somebody will call in and say 'hey, this sounds just like Joe Bag-of-donuts down the street.' We'll check and eventually we'll go interview Joe, and so far those have not panned out," Captain Jeff Waite said.

Those 9-1-1 calls are available for you to listen to here on our Web channel.

If you have any information on who's behind the threatening calls, you're asked to call the Marietta Police Department.
