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.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.
While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.
We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers.
We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.
We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.
We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.
We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
