ALBION – A 16-year-old student, who allegedly made a bomb threat at the high school today, is under house arrest and has been charged with falsely reporting an incident in the first degree.

The Albion Police Department worked in conjunction with school officials to determine that the threat made against the school was false and that there was no danger to students, staff or school facilities, Police Chief Roland Nenni said.

The high school was in a “hold in pace” this morning while police and school leaders investigated the threat. The district sent a message to parents at 11:27 a.m. to let the community know everything was OK.

“Everyone is fine and we are returning to normal operation,” according to the message from Michael Bonnewell, the district superintendent.

The student who made the threat was taken into custody and arraigned at Albion Town Court. He is to return to court on Oct. 18. His name isn’t being released by police.
