Guam – The Guam Police Department has taken minors esponsible for some of the bogus bomb threats in the past week into custody.
The Guam Police Department’s Juvenile Investigation Division, took into custody five (5) female minors responsible for two bomb threats at two Guam middle schools, according to GPD Acting Spokesman Officer Paul Tapao.
A female minor was taken into custody for her involvement in a bomb threat that occurred at Agueda Johnston Middle School on Thursday which caused the evacuation of the entire campus. Tapao explains that school officials conducted an investigation which yielded the identity of the female minor. Juvenile offices were then contacted in which the female minor was confined at the Department of Youth Affairs.
Four female minors were also taken into custody for their involvement in todays bomb threat that occurred at Inarajan Middle School Friday afternoon, also causing an evacuation of the entire campus. During the course of the evacuation, school officials were informed of the identity of the students responsible for the act. All four were later taken into custody by GPD’s Juvenile Investigators and were later confined at the Department of Youth Affairs.
On a separate incident, a male minor from Simon Sanchez High School was taken into custody for verbally communicating, “That he was going to bomb Simon Sanchez High School.” In response to the threat that was made by the student, he was later taken into custody by GPD’s Juvenile Investigators and later confined at the Department of Youth Affairs. This student was not identified as the student responsible for the two bomb threats that were made to the school.
