Lee County-- A Lee County High School student is arrested for threatening to blow up his school. Seventeen-year-old Robert Horne is accused of making a prank bomb threat Friday. This is the first arrest in a series of bomb threats in Lee County schools last week.
Lee County High School Junior Robert Horne turned himself into police Monday afternoon. "It's time to put an end to this. It's time for people to know we are serious about this and we will charge you," said Leesburg Police Chief Charles Moore.
Horne is accused of Friday's bomb threat at the high school-- a prank that caused the school to be shut down for several hours and searched by the Marine Base Bomb Unit.
Police say they were able to target Horne as a suspect, thanks to the help of some classmates. "Based on the student's statements, it was enough motive to charge him for the school," said Moore.
Students tipped off police Friday that Horne wrote the bomb threat on a bathroom wall. Police say they interviewed Horne that same day, but more evidence surfaced to make the arrest.
Now, Horne is charged with making terroristic threats and a false public alarm--felonies that can carry steep penalties. Students caught making such threats are usually suspended from school pending a tribunal hearing at which they could be expelled.
