Police Make Arrests In Bomb Scare

March 29, 2007

Albemarle County Police and Fire Marshals have arrested two Henley Middle School students in connection with the suspicious packages that caused a bomb scare Tuesday.

Both juveniles are under 14-years-old. Authorities say because of their age no other information can be used to identify them. Each suspect has been charged with four felony charges of constructing and or placing a hoax explosive device.

One of the juveniles is also being charged with two misdemeanor counts of threats to bomb or damage buildings, one of the charges relating to the March 20th threat at Henley Middle School.

Police say that there were three hoax devices found at Henley Middle School as well as a hoax device at Brownsville Elementary School and that there was also a written threat in a note at Henley Middle School. Some of those devices pictured below.

The investigation is still ongoing and police are asking anyone with any information about the case to contact the Albemarle County Police Department at 296-5807.
