Teens arrested

Hendersonville police confirmed they are working with law enforcement officials in the Detroit, Mich., area in relation to a bomb threat made to JPII High School last week.  

The private school received a bomb threat by phone at around 12 p.m. on Jan. 30, according to HPD Det. Sgt. Chris Gagnon. 

Students and staff were evacuated while police checked the building, Gagnon added. 

He said that police determined that the call was made by a juvenile in the Detroit area. They are working with officials in that jurisdiction to charge the youth with false reporting. 

Gagnon said JPII was one of several schools that received a threat on that day, but he did not elaborate on where the other schools were located.  

Classes resumed at the high school later the same day.
