Student arrested for phoning in bomb threat to Lutcher High School
LUTCHER - A teen was arrested after a threat to Lutcher High prompted an evacuation of the school Tuesday.
Officials said a phone threat was made to the school around 12:15, prompting them to remove all students from the building. Due to the length of the search, students were dismissed and early bus pick-ups were arranged.
The campus was given an "all clear" around 3 p.m. after it was determined there was no real threat.
The St. James Parish Sheriff's Office announced Thursday that evidence led them to arrest 17-year-old Tyler Anthony Cantillo, a current student of the school, for calling in the threat.
Cantillo was booked into the parish jail on charges of terrorizing and communicating false information of a planned arson. His bond was set at $3,000.
