Thomasville-- When administrators at Thomas County Central High School came in Tuesday morning, they found a message that said a bomb was at the school.
Deputies searched the school and quickly determined it was a hoax. Dep. Steve Jones, the school resource officer says, "The call came in as a private number. It doesn't matter we can still trace it back through the phone companies and find out who the person is." The 16-year old boy was arrested Tuesday afternoon and admitted he left the message.
On Monday, hundreds of students from the same high school were absent after rumors spread of a gun threat at the school.
