Students Make Bomb Threat

Sheriff’s Office Reviews Possible Charges

Two Broad Run High School students are facing charges after making a bomb threat to their school Oct. 24.

Loudoun County Sheriff's Office public information officer Kraig Troxell said the agency is still reviewing possible charges at this time.

The 17-year-old students were located at a pay phone at a nearby shopping area minutes after the phone call was made.

"A deputy happened to be in the area of the school and saw the juveniles in a shopping center," Troxell said. "After he interviewed them, he determined they were involved."

This was the first bomb threat made to a Loudoun County public school this year.

"We do not see them often in Loudoun County public schools," Troxell said. "Last year, there was a series of bomb threats to one school. It appeared to be a copycat situation."
