Police arrest student, 15, in bomb threat

November 05, 1997|By TaNoah Morgan | TaNoah Morgan,SUN STAFF

County police arrested a 15-year-old Millersville girl yesterday in connection with a bomb threat at Old Mill High School.

The girl, a student at the school, was charged as a juvenile with one count of false report of a bomb. She was being held at the Thomas J. S. Waxter Children's Center in Laurel.

School administrators told police that they got the threat by phone about 11 a.m. yesterday and that they evacuated the building and called police. Officers searched the school but found nothing.

Later in the day, a student gave administrators the name of a girl who allegedly made the phone call. Investigators interviewed the girl and she confessed, police said.

Last week at the school, county police arrested a 15-year-old Severn boy on charges of making two bomb threats in two days.
