Teenager charged in school bomb threat
A teenager has been arrested and charged in a bomb threat made at a Davidson County high school nearly two months ago.
Samuel Adams Haynes, 16, of Lexington faces several charges from the bomb threat made Sept. 16 at Central Davidson High School, the Davidson County Sheriff’s Office announced Monday. The false threat was made through a phone call.
Local authorities worked with the U.S. Secret Service to investigate the source of the call. Last Thursday, Haynes was arrested without incident, according to the Sheriff’s Office.
Haynes was a student at Central Davidson High School at the time of the bomb threat, said a spokeswoman for the Davidson County Schools.
Haynes has been charged with making a false report concerning a destructive device, conspiracy to commit a felony, resisting, obstructing and delaying law enforcement and accessory after the fact to a felony. Haynes was placed in custody at the Davidson County Jail in lieu of a $10,000 secured bond, the Sheriff’s Office said Monday.
Haynes’ court date is set for Dec. 2.
