SILVER SPRING, Md. — A student has been charged after pretending to be a school security officer reporting a bomb threat at a Silver Spring high school, Montgomery County police say.
Emergency officials received a call Tuesday around noon from a person identifying themselves as a Montgomery Blair High School security officer, and police say the caller falsely told them that a student had said there was a bomb at the school.
The school was evacuated and searched, but police say no device was found.
A student acknowledged making the call and falsely reporting the threat. Police say the student has been charged as juvenile with making a false statement concerning a destructive device, among other charges.
Police did not release the name of the student.
