Six suspects detained for Copperas Cove ISD bomb threats

Posted:
COPPERAS COVE -

Six suspects have been detained and charged with making a terroristic threat for their connection to three separate incidents at Copperas Cove Independent School District campuses.

Officers responded to Copperas Cove Junior High school just before 9:30 Monday morning. After the school was evacuated, officers detained a 13 year-old boy in connection to the threat and charged him with Terroristic Threat, a 3rd degree felony. The teen was taken to the police department for booking and was then released into the custody of his parent.

As a result of their investigation into a separate threat made at SC Lee Junior High School last Friday, Copperas Cove PD officers detained four teenagers. Three teenage boys, ages 13, 14 and 15, were picked up around 1:15 Monday afternoon. Another 13 year-old was detained sometime over the weekend. Each was charged with Terroristic Threat and was transported to the Bell County Juvenile Detention Facility pending a hearing.

Police also identified and detained a 16 year-old student for making a bomb threat at Copperas Cove High School last Friday afternoon.  The teenage boy faces the same felony charges.

Copperas Cove police and the district evacuated buildings after each threat. There were no injuries reported and no explosive devices were found when police searched the schools.

Prosecution of terroristic threat charges carry a 3rd Degree Felony conviction, 2-10 years imprisonment, a fine up to $10,000, and restitution to the involved entities.

Despite the two arrest made, the Copperas Cove Police Dept. is continuing to investigate all Six incidents. Any tips can be made anonymously through the Copperas Cove Crime Stoppers tip number (254) 547-1111.
