A teenager has been arrested in Lamar for making a bomb threat last week to the high school.
The Lamar Police Department says on March 22, a bomb threat forced the evacuation of Lamar High School. On Monday, police arrested the 16-year-old student at Lamar High School who they say is responsible for the false report.
The teenager who was arrested will not be identified due to their age. They've been charged with one felony count of False Report of Explosives and one misdemeanor charge of Interference with a School. Lamar police say the juvenile was taken to the Pueblo Youth Center on a no bond warrant.
LPD says investigation is ongoing and other individuals may be charged at a later date.
