On 3/3/14, the student wrote with pencil on the bathroom wall that she was going to blow up the school. She made similar threats on her Twitter account. On 3/4/14, the school announced a Crime Stoppers reward up $500 on the P.A. system. As a result of the announcement, a student called in a tip that led detectives to the suspect. She confessed to writing the threat saying she was angry that she was suspended from the school bus for 10 days.
