Student charged in Yankton school bomb threat
YANKTON (AP) — An 18-year-old Yankton High School student has been charged with making a false bomb threat at the school.
The Yankton Daily Press & Dakotan reports that Tanner Termansen was arrested Tuesday and later charged with falsely reporting a bomb threat, a felony.
He also has been suspended from school.
School District Superintendent Wayne Kindle says the bomb threat was found written on a table at the school library, and school officials immediately called police.
Students were held in their fifth-period classrooms during an investigation by police and school administration officials.
Kindle says it was the first bomb threat at a school in the district in more than a dozen years.
