Paducah, KY – Authorities have arrested a juvenile for making a bomb threat at Reidland Middle School this week. The McCracken County Sheriff's Department responded after a note was found Wednesday in the boys' restroom. The message written on a toilet paper dispenser stated, "I'm going to blow up the school today." The school was evacuated and Sheriff's deputies and staff members searched the premises, but found nothing. A 13-year-old student was identified as the note writer and taken to the Juvenile Detention Center. A bomb threat is a Class C Felony.
