A 12-year-old boy was arrested late this week by Terrebonne Parish Sheriff's for calling in a bomb threat to Evergreen Junior High School.

The boy, a student at Andrew Price Tapps in Schriever, is charged with communicating false information of a planned arson.

According to Capt. Dawn Foret, shortly before 3 p.m. Thursday, faculty at the school received a phone call from a boy who claimed that a bomb would explode on campus at 9 o'clock, though not saying whether that was 9 p.m. Thursday or 9 a.m. Friday.

Detectives responded, using bomb-sniffing dogs to determine that nothing was at the school.

The investigation led detectives to a house on Hwy. 316. They contacted the people living at the house and determined that the threat was made by a 12-year-old boy.

The school received reinforcement Friday morning from additional deputies, officials said, and no problems occurred.
