High school student arrested for making false bomb threat

Tampa, Florida -- A student was arrested Tuesday for making a false bomb threat at Plant High School.

Police say on March 3, a student wrote in pencil on the bathroom wall that they were going to blow up the school and made similar threats on Twitter.

Then on March 4, the school announced a Crime Stoppers reward up to $500 on the P.A. system for information on who wrote the threat. A student called in a tip that led detectives to the 18-year-old female student.

In an interview with detectives, she confessed to writing the threats saying she was angry that she had been suspended from the school bus for 10 days.

She has been charged with making a false bomb threat. After a discussion with our News Director and reviewing our Crime Guidelines, 10 News has decided not to identify the student at this time.
