Student admits to bomb threat

January 17, 2012
A student has confessed to perpetrating the bomb scare that forced evacuation of the Bonners Ferry Middle School on Tuesday, and a special school board meeting is being set up, possibly next week, to decide on disciplinary measures to be taken by the school.

It has been verified by district superintendent Dick Conley that the student, a sixth grade girl, has been expelled pending the special board meeting.

In addition to whatever punishment the school district metes out, she also faces whatever criminal charges may be brought by the state. The Bonners Ferry Police Department is conducting that investigation, and it will be up to the city prosecutor on what charges, if any, to file.

Because no criminal charges have been brought, the name of the alleged perpetrator and details of the investigation are not being released, including whether the student was involved in similar hoaxes earlier in the year.
