November 20, 2018

Monticello, FL (November 19, 2018) – Two teen girls were arrested and accused of making threats to the Somerset Academy in Monticello, both of which are 17 years old.

The girls were both arrested after a bomb threat was called into their school. The caller claimed that there was a bomb in the building and it would go off at 1000 hours. The next day, another bomb was called in and the caller referenced the previous bomb threat, saying that there was another in the school.

Investigators were able to trace the calls, which involved two different teenagers, back to a Somerset Academy student. The first teenager admitted that she made the call before she was read her Miranda rights. She told officers that her friend made the other call.

The teens, whose names have been withdrawn from the story because they are considered to be underage, were charged with making a false report concerning the planting of a bomb, explosive, or weapon of mass destruction and using firearms in a violent manner.
