17-year-old student faces felony charges for threat at Greendale H.S. | News
GREENDALE — Police have arrested a 17-year-old male student they say is responsible for writing a bomb threat in a bathroom at Greendale High School.
Detectives used school video surveillance, handwriting comparisons and interviews to narrow down the suspects. The teenager was taken into custody on Tuesday, September 25th.
The suspect, who is being held in custody, reported that he penned the threat in an attempt to disrupt Homecoming activities.
The suspect has been referred to the Milwaukee County District Attorney’s Office on Wednesday, September 26th where he faces felony charges.
FOX6′s news partners at the Greendale Patch reported Tuesday, September 25th: “The student will face the school district’s usual and customary discipline process up to and including expulsion, according to a release from the district. The student will not be allowed to return to Greendale High School until the situation is resolved.”
The threat forced school officials to move the GHS Homecoming Dance to the Greendale Middle School on Saturday night. During that time, the high school underwent a couple of canine searches and was locked down for safety’s sake.
Another canine sweep was conducted at Greendale High School Monday.
