Central Texas School Bomb Threat a Hoax
News 10 is reporting that the Central Texas student who was arrested on Wednesday because of a possible bomb threat has revealed the threat to be a hoax.
The 16-year-old student was arrested on a school bus that was headed to the Killeen ISD Career Wednesday.
In a message to parents, Career Center Principal Russell Porterfield said that the student wrote the threat on the school's sign-in sheet.
“The threat was a hoax. Killeen Police and KISD Police investigated, students were searched, and the student who made the anonymous written threat was identified and he confessed,” said Porterfield.
Police from Killeen took the student into custody after the threat was revealed.
“There was no bomb. No one was harmed and school continued as planned. The student is being charged with making a terroristic threat. Please talk with your students and help us to make clear that no threat of any kind will ever be tolerated. These types of threats are serious crimes and we will always aggressively investigate and help prosecute any students who make such threats," said Porterfield.
