3 arrested after bomb scare at Lafourche school
THIBODAUX - Three students at Central Lafourche High School are in custody after a bomb scare at the school.
Sheriff Craig Webre and Lafourche Parish Public Schools Superintendent Jo Ann Matthews said the arrests Tuesday came after the school was placed on lockdown when a note was found in a boys' restroom stating, "There will be a bombing at 12:00."
Authorities determined the threat was not credible and later identified the boys, ages 14 and 15, as the suspects. Their names were not released because of their ages.
Each was booked into the parish Juvenile Justice Facility in Thibodaux on a charge of communicating of false information of planned bombing on school property. It was unknown if the boys are represented by an attorney.
Disciplinary action from school officials is also pending.
