A Lamar Middle School student was busted Wednesday afternoon by the Flower Mound Police Department for threatening to blow up his school.
The unidentified juvenile was detained by police for making a terroristic threat and released to his parents after confessing to sending threatening emails to Lamar Middle School personnel.
“Typically the juvenile courts will proceed with this charge and the suspect may end up doing community service,” said Flower Mound Police Department Capt. Kurt Labhart.
On Wednesday morning, Flower Mound Police were notified by school officials of an unsubstantiated email describing a bomb threat thought to target Lamar Middle School.
Campus and district personnel immediately implemented emergency operating procedures and notified the Flower Mound Police.
As a precaution, police officers and the DFW Airport K-9 Unit swept the building and were able to determine the building was clear of explosives while the students waited in the gymnasium.
After the sweep, students were able to return to class and resume their normal schedule.
