    Police say a false report of an armed man with explosive devices triggered a lockdown of a New Hampshire Boys & Girls Club on Wednesday afternoon.

    According to Nashua Police, a call was received by an unknown man saying he was armed and had explosive devices if he wasn't given an undisclosed amount of money, which police say caused them to lockdown the Boys & Girls Club on Grand Avenue and the adjacent Ledge Elementary School.

    Nashua Public Schools Superintendent Mark Conrad also confirmed that 40 students on board busses to the club were redirected to Fairgrounds Elementary.

    Police say they are investigating, and that a false report involving explosives is a felony punishable by seven years in prison, exclusive of fines.
