ENON — The student who reported the threat at Greenon High School Thursday, May 12 is the same student who is being arrested for felony inducing panic and criminal mischief and was transported to the Clark County Juvenile Detention Center, according to a release by the Clark County Sheriff’s Office.
An investigation by a detective and educational support officer of the Clark County Sheriff’s Office revealed that the student who reported threat was the individual responsible for creating it, the release said.
The threat was written inside one of the boy’s bathrooms at Greenon High School and warned of two bombs within the facility that were scheduled to detonate 11 a.m. the same day, according to the release. The Clark County Sheriff’s Office Educational Support Officer who is assigned to the Greenon Local School District became aware of the bomb threat Thursday approximately 9:42 a.m.
The release said Clark County Sheriff Deputies and Greenon High School employees evacuated students from the building to a football field. Once the students were cleared, the Wright-Patterson Air Force Base Bomb Squad, Dayton International Airport Police Bomb Squad and bomb-sniffing dogs were called into action. The Mad Township Fire/Rescue squad was called to standby as a precaution. The inside and outside of the building was searched, which revealed no devices or explosives of any kind.
Greenon High School students were sent home for the remainder of the school day.
