Tennessee Teenager Suspected in Series of Bomb Threats Against San Jacinto High

A 16-year-old teenager from Dyer, Tennessee, has emerged as a suspect in a string of bomb threats targeting San Jacinto High, according to the Riverside County Sheriff’s Department. The threats, which occurred between March 5 and March 13, prompted immediate action from law enforcement. Despite thorough searches conducted by deputies on each occasion, no explosive devices were found within the school premises, as stated in a news release.

Investigators have successfully linked the Tennessee teenager to some of the threats, but two other instances remain under investigation to determine the responsible party. A report has been forwarded to Tennessee law enforcement authorities to facilitate the prosecution of the suspect.

The Sheriff’s Department has refrained from disclosing the method used to convey the threats, whether through telephone or social media, as well as the specific content of the messages. It is worth noting that threats originating from out of state are not unprecedented. In February, Illinois youths aged 12, 13, and 14 were apprehended after students in Florida reported receiving text messages containing threats of shootings and bombings.

While deputies maintained a presence on the San Jacinto High campus, two students were arrested on Wednesday for alleged battery and resisting arrest following altercations, according to Sgt. Deirdre Vickers, a spokesperson for the sheriff’s office.
