Student arrested after Crescent Elk bomb threat

A female Crescent Elk Middle School student was arrested on suspicion of calling in a bomb threat to the school Tuesday.

The call proved to be a false alarm after authorities scoured school grounds.

The call was placed around 10 a.m., claiming a bomb was inside the school at 994 G St.

The school was placed on lockdown after Crescent City police officers determined the suspected identity of the caller didn’t warrant evacuation, according to a CCPD statement. Nearby Joe Hamilton Elementary School was also placed on lockdown.

Officers established a safety perimeter around the school as other officers and school staff members conducted a sweep.
