Always the Last to Know - School Bomb Threat

I've never been one of those "Helicopter Parents" but this would have been nice to know about. Cut and paste from Roseville Police Press Release:

During the late evening hours of Tuesday, October 4th, Roseville Police Detectives arrested and placed a 15-year old Maplewood male at the Ramsey County Juvenile Detention Center on a probable cause Terroristic Threats violation.

It was at 12:53 p.m. on Tuesday, October 4th, the Roseville Police Department responded to a bomb threat at Roseville Area High School located at 1240 West County Road B2.

Roseville Area High School officials told investigating officers an anonymous caller had called the school and left a voice mail message indicating he would “blow-up” the school at the school at 7:30 a.m. on Wednesday, October 5th.

Police and school officials searched the school and found no suspicious items.

During the subsequent police investigation, detectives learned the identity of the suspect who made the bomb threat to the school. When questioned by detectives, the youth admitted to making the bomb threat to the school as “a prank.”

This 15-year old suspect was charged by the Ramsey County Attorney’s Office earlier today with felony terroristic threats.

The Roseville Police Department is continuing to investigate this case to determine if others were involved.


Still haven't received a communication from school - the Shana got this via email from the City (she subscribes to all their news via email).

Update - Shana reports there is a voice mail on the home phone left at 9:30 AM today. They were probably waiting to see if the bomb went off at 7:30 before calling. Considering I knew all about homecoming week BEFORE it even happened, thanks to the School's listserv email, you think they would notify us Tuesday - the day of the arrests, etc.
