11-year-old arrested in bomb threat
NAPOLEONVILLE - Sheriff's deputies arrested an Assumption Parish 11-year-old after they said he admitted to calling in a bomb threat to a Napoleonville pharmacy.
Deputies said the threat was called in Tuesday morning to the Assumption Pharmacy on Washington Street. Authorities evacuated the pharmacy and nearby businesses while bomb technicians checked the scene, failing to find any bombs.
Investigators said a pharmacy worker gave them the phone number of the person who called in the threat, which they copied off caller ID. Deputies traced the phone number to a Napoleonville woman and said while they were interviewing her, her 11-year-old son admitted he called in the threat.
Deputies arrested the boy in suspicion of communicating false information of a planned arson. Investigators said they and truancy officers are also looking into why the boy wasn't in school this week.
