November 2, 2017

ATHENS, Ala. (AP) — Authorities say two juveniles have been arrested and charged with phoning in a bogus terrorist threat to an elementary school.

Limestone County sheriff’s spokesman Stephen Young says someone claiming to be a FBI agent called Johnson Elementary School in Athens on Tuesday and urged administrators to evacuate the school immediately.

Al.com reports the school evacuated and sheriff’s deputies later found no evidence of a real threat.

A sheriff’s investigator arrested the two suspects Wednesday on charges of making a terrorist threat. Young said their name and other details were not being released because they are juveniles.
