Lee County-- An 11-year old girl is charged with making two separate bomb threats at Lee County Elementary School.

Wednesday, a note was found in the elementary school's bathroom warning of a bomb. The girl is accused of writing that note, and another one found November 21st at the school.

Police say students at the school tipped off police. "The kids are realizing a lot more too, it is not just a joke," said Charlie Moore of the Leesburg Police Dept. "It interrupts other kids, classes and is expensive to the city to come out on the bomb."

 The student has been suspended, charged with making a terroristic threat and disrupting school.

But that's not all. There was also a bomb threat this morning at the Lee County  alternative school, located inside the elementary school. A 15-year old female student was turned in by a peer right after dropping a threatening note in the hallway.

That student has been suspended and is facing felony charges.
