Police search Lee Middle for bomb

November 19, 2002

Leesburg- School officials say three students found a bomb threat handwritten in a bathroom stall. The note said there would be a bomb at 10:15 in the morning.

Though they believe the threat is a prank, police searched the building anyway.

"In the morning when students start arriving, we will search bookbags and jackets and make certain nothing goes in at that time, and then we'll start to take some precautions on what we allow them to bring," says Lee County School Superintendent Bill Lewis

Students will be allowed to bring regular bookbags in the morning, but they'll have to use clear or mesh style bags after Wednesday. The school dealt with several similar threats last spring.
