GREENWOOD (KFSM) - The Greenwood Police Department made an arrest in a bomb threat investigation from the 2013-2014 school year that took place on June 5 at the Greenwood High School, according to a post on their Facebook page.

A bomb threat was found written on a bathroom wall, and this led to students being evacuated and authorities searching the school.

New information was obtained during the bomb threat incident that took place on Wednesday (Sept. 10) that led to the arrest in the previous investigation from the 2013-2014 school year, the post states.

Greenwood police are still continuing to investigate Tuesday's bomb threat that also led to the school being evacuated, according to the post.

    Folks will no doubt rant and rave about how:
    A) people just do this for the attention/publicity
    B) they should be punished SEVERELY – cuz nothing gets our blood flowing like the thought of young people feeling the heavy hand of the law.
    But honestly, for those who haven’t been in a classroom for so long that they have forgotten certain basics – kids don’t do this for “attention” – do do it so they can get out of school!
    As for pushing draconian punishments on young people? Some people just don’t like young people much to start with . . .

      Perhaps you wouldn’t be so easy on the poor student if you realized just how much it cost the taxpayer for these little “get out of school” pranks. Ask you local Chiefs of Police and Fire just how much the man and equipment hours cost the taxpayer per incident. You can’t put a price on the worry or just downright TERROR put on the parents. How about the lost school time and the teachers and administrators time and worry. I’m sorry, I believe these people should have “the heavy hand of the law” applied to them.

    Expect City Prosecutor’s to look the other way and target children uninvolved for personal reasons.

    Small town games, big time corruption in the city prosecutors office.

    Jeeze. Teachers put up with enough as it is. Low wages, unreasonable children, pressure from standardized testing. One can’t imagine the panic this causes teachers.
