An Allen County teenager is in custody for allegedly making bomb threats against her school on Twitter. The Lima News reports the 14-year-old Elida High School student could face an inducing panic charge. Authorities have not released the girl’s name. She could make an initial court appearance today.
An out-of-state investigator found the threat and alerted local law enforcement Tuesday morning. Deputies took the girl into custody before she left for school.
The newspaper reports investigators have not found any bombs.
The threat does not appear to have any connection to an incident from Elida Middle School last month. A 13-year-old brought knives with him to school and had planned to kill his principal. He instead told the principal about the plot.
