MADISON, Miss.- Two bomb threats were made at Madison Central High School within days of each other, now police are saying a student is responsible for one of the threats.
The 17-year-old student, who has not been named yet, is accused of calling the school office and reporting a possible explosive device inside the school around 9:30 a.m. Tuesday, police said.
A similar situation happened last Friday as well. Police are still investigating to see if the two incidents were called in by the same person.
The students were evacuated from the school onto the football and baseball fields both times while police, bomb sniffing dogs and fire departments checked out the scene to make sure all was safe. Nothing was found either time.
The student faces charges of falsely reporting an explosive device in Madison County Youth Court, authorities said.
