A third juvenile was arrested Monday in connection with the 10th bomb threat at Central Kitsap Junior High School in five weeks. The ninth bomb threat was found on a computer on March 9.
A 15-year-old CKJH student was arrested at 8:40 a.m. Monday after a bomb threat was found in one of the bathrooms. This time, the threat was on a hand-written note found in the bathroom, according to Kitsap County Sheriffs Office spokesman Deputy Scott Wilson.
The note was found at 7:19 a.m. The school was not evacuated.
Wilson said it is difficult to understand why, in light of the recent arrests, the bomb threats continue.
Its hard to say why this type of thing continues when they are going to be caught, Wilson said.
School district spokeswoman Laurie Cizon said the fast arrest means the security measures the school is using are working.
The threat at Central Kitsap Junior High School ended almost as quickly as it started, Cizon said. The new measures the school is taking to apprehend the perpetrators worked. She would not elaborate on the security measures.
Two other juveniles, a 14-year-old and a 12-year-old, both students at CKJH were arrested earlier this month.
The 14-year-old was arrested on March 3 and is suspected in two bomb threats, and the 12-year-old was arrested on March 4 for one bomb threat.
The 12-year-old was released from the juvenile detention center on March 7 and the 14-year-old bonded out on $5,000 bail.
