Carthage HS bomb threat a hoax


A note with a bomb threat was found in a Carthage High School bathroom Thursday morning.

After a confession was made, the note was found to be a hoax, according to a press release from the district.

“The New York State Police advised the district to conduct a lock down when they arrived for the search,” said Superintendent Peter J. Turner in a press release. “A confession was made before the police could respond with a search dog.”

The press release said a specific time and location was given. The student who confessed as been arrested and is suspended from school. He or she will have a disciplinary hearing at a later date.

“The students were never in any danger,” Mr. Turner said in the press release.

He could not be reached for further comment.
