AMHERST, Va. (AP) - School officials in Amherst County are cracking down on false bomb threats.
There have been six bomb threats in the first fourth months of the school year. Schools Superintendent Steven Nichols tells The News & Advance that school officials have had enough.
Nichols says the school division is installing detection equipment to catch perpetrators. A $500 reward will be offered for the identity of anyone who makes a bomb threat.
He says the school division also might require parents to pay restitution for costs associated with police and fire response to false alarms.
