North Carolina student arrested for making bomb threat

The 17-year-old threatened to blow up the school.

A teenager in North Carolina was arrested twice in the past month, after threatening to blow up his school, an official said Saturday.

Alamance County Sheriff Terry Johnson told FOX8 the 17-year-old student was originally arrested on Feb. 5 for threatening to blow up the Clover Garden charter school in Burlington, located about 26 km northwest of Greensboro.

“The things that can come back and really going to happen and we can not return it to us,” Johnson said.

The teen, who has not yet been adopted by the government, bound out of the prison on Feb. 12 but was threatening again to blow up the school on his way out, according to the sheriff.

“We are not going over one night ice. You make a threat, you are going to be charged.”

“To get out of prison, he just walked out the door and made that statement, I think the judge will look to the quite serious,” Johnson told FOX8.

The incidents took place before the deadly rampage at a high school in South Florida that left 17 dead, but the North Carolina sheriff said it serves as a wake-up call that every threat must be taken seriously.

“We are not going over one night ice,” Johnson said. “You make a threat, you are going to be charged.”
