Student arrested for bomb threat

March 24, 2003

Dougherty Co. -- A Radium Middle School student is charged with phoning a bomb threat to the school. The 14-year-old was arrested Friday afternoon and charged with terroristic threats and acts, and released to his parents.

He used a cell phone to call in the bomb threat just before noon. Radium Middle received three bomb threats last week, one Wednesday, one Thursday, and one Friday.

The last two calls came from the same cell phone, which belonged to a female student at the school. Thursday's threat was made by a female.

The 8th grader who was arrested is on suspension for ten days, and then will have a tribunal hearing. An investigation continues into the other two bomb threats.
