Bomb threat for not completing a school assignment

The Spokesman-Review

SPOKANE — A 15-year-old girl suspected of making a bomb threat that caused classes to be canceled one day last week may have done so because she hadn’t finish a school assignment by its due day, according to Spokane County sheriff investigators.

The threat, written on a bathroom mirror on March 20, resulted in the closure of the school for the day. No bomb was found.

The girl, who was not identified, was arrested Tuesday and booked into the Juvenile Detention Center, according to a news release from Deputy Craig Chamberlin.

She will likely be charged with a felony in making the threat, he said.
