Coeur d' Alene Police Seeking Charge In School Bomb Threat
COEUR d'ALENE, Idaho - Police in Coeur d'Alene are recommending prosecutors file charges against a 16-year-old Lake City High School student for a bomb threat that closed the school last month.
The Coeur d'Alene Press reports school officials contacted police before noon on Sept. 26 after a note was found on school grounds warning that a bomb would explode at the high school.
School resource officer Andy Sterling learned from the suspect's friends that the boy left the note so he could get out of going to math class.
Police Sgt. Christie Wood says the department is asking Kootenai County prosecutors to seek restitution for police department expenses. The costs have not been determined. The boy's name is not being released because he is a juvenile.
