Police locate suspect in January bomb threat
PLYMOUTH — Plymouth Police have a suspect in the January bomb threat at Plymouth High School.
Plymouth Police Detective Sgt. Jim Cox told the media that a student at the high school had come forward Monday admitting to writing the threat that was found on a bathroom wall at the school.
Cox stated in his release to media outlets Wednesday that the student said he had no intention of harming other students or the facility.
Plymouth Schools had a two-hour delay Jan. 24 after a threat on a bathroom wall was discovered the night before. All after school extra-curricular activities at PHS were cancelled that night, and the premises evacuated, allowing Plymouth Police to make an initial search of the building.
School officials were present to meet the sports teams that were at away games, to keep them from entering the school in the evening when they arrived back in Plymouth.
School officials contacted the Indiana State Police bomb squad K9 units who were assembled and arrived in Plymouth early the morning of Jan. 24 to conduct another sweep of the building. No bomb was found, and school officials made the decision to continue with school for the day with an increased security presence.
