School Bomb Threats

Students at two South Mississippi schools had to be evacuated today after separate bomb threats. An arrest has been made in one of those cases.
The first was this morning at D’iberville High where students were evacuated for a short time after a threatening message in a school bathroom was discovered. Police tell News 25 an arrest has been made in this case but the suspect’s identity cannot be released because the person is a 15-year-old student. No one was injured and students eventually returned to class.
A few hours later, students at nearby St. Martin High School were evacuated to the upper elementary school after a bomb threat was made there. After authorities scoured the campus, students safely returned to class. No word yet on whether the two incidents are related.
“St. Martin High School received a bomb threat and the deputy sheriff’s office responded out there,” said Jackson County Sheriff Mike Ezell.
“Ironically, Crime Stoppers was here yesterday giving the program See Something, Say Something, Get Rewarded,” said Lori Massey, coordinator for Mississippi Coast Crime Stoppers.
Crime Stoppers is offering up to a $1,000 reward for any information leading up to an arrest. To report a tip, call 877-787-5898. All calls are anonymous.
