'Unverified bomb threat' prompts brief evacuation of Chickasaw High School

'Unverified bomb threat' prompts brief evacuation of Chickasaw High School

"And the goal of that device was to cause severe injury, potentially death, and damage", said Lona Trombley, Public Information Officer with St. George Police.

According to the news release, the Hurricane City Police Department plans to file charges for the suspect's reported involvement in the ISIS-related vandalism on February 15.

'A warrant was served on the residence of that juvenile and items were located that were consistent with the material used to build the device placed at Pine View, ' police said.

A teenager who tried to detonate an explosive device at a Utah High School this week researched the terrorist group ISIS, police said.

Student Jack Whalen said he spotted the suspicious backpack, which was open and smoking.

He said "he was just joking around".

Chief Dave Riviere released few details and declined to describe the specific nature of the treats or say how it was discovered by police.

Districts across Nassau and Suffolk counties enacted heightened security measures Monday as parents and school officials reported a threatening Snapchat post that had circulated widely. Several area students have been charged for making threats, including an 11-year-old accusing of making a bomb threat at a Prince William elementary school last month. "Threats against schools are treated very seriously and students who are determined to have made such threats face consequences through our school's code of conduct, as well as potential legal consequences". McRorie said the department is continuing to investigate.

The flag and message appeared the day after a shooting at a Florida high school that killed 17. "We've had additional officers throughout all of our schools".

The lockdown was lifted and students resumed classes at about 2 p.m., after police determined the building to be safe, according to the statement.

Brandt-Campagna advised the school community that students should secure their personal information to prevent identity theft. Police declined to identify the arrested teen or give his age.
