Boy charged with making bomb threats to school

November 04, 1997

County police arrested a 15-year-old Severn youth Friday on charges of making two bomb threats in two days to Old Mill High School.

The boy, charged with two counts of making a false report of a bomb, was being held at the Thomas J. S. Waxter Children's Center in Laurel.

Police said someone called the school Thursday and Friday to warn of a bomb left in the school. The school was evacuated both days while police searched the building, but they found nothing.

On Friday, three students gave a school administrator the name of a ninth-grader who allegedly made the calls. Investigators questioned the boy and he confessed to both incidents, police said.
