Editor’s note: The following incidents were listed among the official reports of local law enforcement agencies and court clerks. Readers are reminded that an arrest or charge does not constitute a finding of guilt. Only a court of law can make that determination.
Bomb threat at Greenville High School was hoax
A bomb threat discovered written on the wall of a boys bathroom at Greenville High School on the morning of Oct. 27 was not a real threat, police said.
School officials did call police to the school, but their investigation determined that the threat was not credible. Classes were not disrupted.
Police said the student responsible for the threat was identified and questioned before being released to a guardian. Police have turned information over to the Bond County state’s attorney for review and determination of any possible charges.
