3 Iowa teens face felony charges in school threat

INDIANOLA, Iowa (AP) — Authorities have filed felony charges against three students suspected of writing a bomb threat that forced the evacuation of Indianola High School.

The Des Moines Register says (http://dmreg.co/HvJW4w) the three are charged with terroristic threats and have been released to their parents.

Indianola Community Schools officials briefly evacuated students to nearby buses on Oct. 23 after a student took the bomb threat note to the main school office. He said he found it in a restroom. No bomb was found.

The three students are ages 14, 15 and 16. The Associated Press doesn’t generally identify juveniles charged with crimes.

A police report says the students came up with the bomb threat idea after deciding they wanted to get out of school early.
