Middle School Students Arrested for Bomb Threat
The Hopkinsville Police Department has arrested two 13-year-olds and charged them with terroristic threatening for writing a bomb threat note at North Drive Middle School. Police arrested the boys yesterday afternoon after a teacher and a student found the note in the school hallway. Both confessed to school staff on scene and again at the Hopkinsville Police Department.
They face first degree terroristic threatening charges. Christian County Schools spokesperson Heather Aubin says when the threat was found, the middle school staff evacuated all students and had buses pick them up away from the campus. Police searched the school, but found nothing dangerous.
Christian County school administrators evacuated North Drive Middle School this afternoon after a teacher found a bomb threat written on a piece of paper. School district spokesperson Heather Aubin says students were evacuated around 2:30 p.m. today, as local law enforcement searched the building. She says the bomb threat did not affect any other Christian County schools. Aubin says because regular daily dismissal is 3:30 p.m., the school arranged to have buses pick up students away from the North Drive campus. As of four o’clock, investigators had not reported any findings in the school search.
