SYLVESTER, Ga. — Five juveniles and one parent have been charged in connection with a series of bomb threats that have disrupted school in Worth County this week.
Lt. Ronnie Graddy of the Sylvester Police Department said that a total of five juveniles have been charged with crimes ranging from making terroristic threats to disruption of a public school. The parent of one of the juveniles has been charged with disorderly conduct "as a result of their action upon arrival at the school," Graddy said via e-mail Wednesday afternoon.
Two Worth County schools were evacuated following a second-straight day of threats on Wednesday morning.
Heather Greene, a spokesperson for the school system, said that Worth County Middle school and Worth County Elementary school resumed classes Wednesday .
Those evacuations capped a week of disruptions for the Worth County School System. Reports suggested that a message was found inside one of the schools Wednesday, prompting the evacuations.
On Tuesday, Worth County High School, Worth County Middle School and Worth County Elementary School were each evacuated after a series of bomb threats, including at least one that was made by phone, according a letter sent to teachers by the Worth County High School principal.
