Lakeland, Florida -- A 14-year-old student was arrested Thursday for making a bomb threat while at school.
Lakeland Police say around 10:40 a.m., Lakeland Highlands Middle School received several messages from someone impersonating school officials over a coach's walkie-talkie. The messages ordered certain individuals to the office with one in particular stating, "The explosives are in place and I'm feeling crazy."
The school was evacuated and Lakeland Police officers, along with school officials, searched the school for any suspicious packages.
Meanwhile, the school resource officer and administrators received information from several students on who a possible suspect was. Eventually, the student was located and interviewed. During the interview, he admitted to making the threats and the walkie-talkie was found in his backpack.
The boy was taken into custody and charged with making a bomb threat, a second degree felony. He was taken to the Juvenile Assessment Center.
