According to Sevier Co. Sheriff Ron Seals an 11 year old female juvenile has been charged in connection with a bomb threat that occurred at New Center School on Wednesday Nov. 14th 2007.

Officers with SCSD responded to the school after a report that there was writing in the girl’s bathroom that indicated there was possibly a bomb in the school. After a search by Sevier Co. Sheriffs Office Explosive K-9 unit and Hazardous Device Unit, nothing was found at the school.
