— A 14-year-old Milton High School student was referred to authorities Friday afternoon after a bomb threat was discovered at the high school Thursday, according to a news release from the Milton Police Department.

The student has been suspended from school, pending further action, and confined at a juvenile detention facility. Police will request felony bomb scare charges in the case, the release said.


Milton Police Chief Jerry Schuetz called the threat “relatively low-level.”


It was found written on the inside of a stall in the girls bathroom, he said.


The school was evacuated after a student reported the writing at about 4 p.m. Thursday. Police and district officials searched students as they entered the building Friday.


Authorities conducted an assessment of the juvenile and the juvenile’s family and noted no further threats, the release said.
