HoptownPoliceHOPKINSVILLE, KY (2/2/12) – A 14-year-old Oak Grove girl has been arrested in connection to bomb threats made against Christian County High School. Hopkinsville Police Public Information Officer Paul Ray says the juvenile was interviewed by detectives at the high school and admitted to making the threats.

Ray says the incident began shortly after 8 a.m. Thursday morning.  A guidance counselor at the high school received an email which indicated there was a bomb at CCHS.  According to Christian County Public Schools Communications Director Heather Aubin, the faculty member alerted the Board of Education to the threatening email.  School system officials then notified Hopkinsville Police.  A second paper note was later discovered dropped off at the school.

Officer Ray says Detective Bert Finley was able to analyze the guidance counselor’s computer.  Law enforcement was then granted a subpoena to search records which led them to the student’s internet provider and ultimately her address.

The student was arrested at the high school and admitted to making the threats.  She was charged with two counts of 2nd degree terroristic threatening.  The girl was later transported to the Juvenile Detention Center in Paducah.

During the investigation, Christian County High School students were safely moved to the old middle school next door.  Around 9:30 a.m. parents were allowed to begin picking up high school students from a secure entrance off of North Elm Street.  Just before 11 a.m. the high school was deemed safe and students returned to their classrooms to resume normal activities.
