Penn Hills police arrest 2 teens in connection with recent bomb threats
Penn Hills police arrested two teens in connection with bomb threats made against Penn Hills High School and Linton Middle School.
An April 7 bomb threat was reported at the high school, followed the next day by a threat at Linton and a second threat at the middle school on April 9.
Penn Hills Police Chief Howard Burton said a male high-school student was arrested April 8, and a female middle-school student was arrested April 9.
“We solved those threats relatively quickly, early on in the day,” Burton said.
Burton did not give the teens' age, but did note that they are not connected with the long string of bomb threats that kicked off the 2013-14 school year.
