Detectives today obtained a criminal charge and detention order for the oldest student involved in Monday’s bomb threat hoax. The offender, a fifteen year old female, faces a Class 5 felony charge of §18.2-83 Threat to Bomb (the age of offender at the time of the alleged offense determines whether or not the punishment will be a felony or misdemeanor). Officers took her into custody at her residence at 4:30 PM. She is being detained at the Shenandoah Valley Juvenile Detention Center pending a hearing in Waynesboro Juvenile & Domestic Relations Court.
Charges are still pending against the other two students involved.
