Arrest made after second bomb threat
Submitted By Fremont PD
On Thursday, March 14, for the second day in a row Thornton Jr. High School received a bomb threat that came in via multiple telephone calls. Quick thinking staff, with the help of patrol officers, was able to determine that a student on campus was responsible. It is unlikely that this student was acting alone and officers are continuing to investigate whether additional people are involved. Due to a number of circumstances stemming from Wednesday's incident, the school was not placed on lock-down.
A 14-year old male student was arrested and released to his parents on a NTA (Notice to Appear) charging him with two counts each of a bomb threat at a school and domestic terrorist threats. The incident was supervised by Sgt. Crandall & SRO Sgt. Koepf.
