Suspect jailed for AHS bomb threat
An 18 year old man is in jail concerning a bomb threat at Alliance High School Tuesday that turned out to be a hoax.
Lieutenant Ken Hart says a bomb threat note was found in the Alliance High School shortly before 10 a.m. The note indicated there was a bomb in the school and requested that everyone leave the school before 11:30 a.m.
Officers with the Alliance Police Department and Alliance Volunteer Fire Department responded but the school was not evacuated because a suspect was developed immediately and it appeared to be a hoax. The suspected writer of the note was interviewed and subsequently arrested. After a search of the suspect's locker and vehicle, the school resumed normal activity at about 11:10 a.m.
18 year old Brandon Stites of rural Alliance was booked into the Box Butte County Jail on suspicion of threatening to use explosives, a class four felony that carries a maximum sentence of five years in prison if convicted.
