Shreveport Teen Arrested for Calling in Bomb Threat
SHREVEPORT, LA - A local teenager has been taken into custody for causing quite a disturbance at a local school. Caddo Sheriff’s detectives arrested a 17-year-old juvenile for making a bomb threat.
Sheriff Steve Prator says detectives got the call Friday morning at about 10:30 about a call a faculty member at Green Oaks Performing Arts Academy received. Someone on this call made the bomb threat.
Detectives were able to find out the source of that call and it turned out to be a female student at Green Oaks. She was questioned by the detectives and she told them this was just a prank and she hoped it would get her out of school for the day.
The school was placed on lockdown while investigators with the Caddo Sheriff’s Office, the Shreveport Fire Department, and Caddo School Board Security searched the property.
The student was arrested and charged with Terrorizing. She was booked into the Caddo Juvenile Detention Center.
