A 31-year-old Flint Township woman has been arrested for allegedly issuing bomb threats against the Carman Ainsworth School District.
Woman faces multiple charges
The woman was formally charged in the 67th District Court yesterday (9/11) and could face up to four years in prison on each of the following counts:
- Count 1 – False report or threat of a bomb/harmful device (4 year felony)
- Count 2 – False report or threat of a bomb/harmful device (4 year felony)
- Count 3 – Tampering with Evidence (4 Year Crime)
The Flint Police Department and Michigan State Police Department officers were called by administrators from the Carman Ainsworth School District on September 7. Several bomb threats had been made against more than one building in the school system.
Bomb-sniffing dogs were called in by police to search for explosives and clear buildings before students and staff were allowed back into class.
According to our media partners at Mid-Michigan Now, police were able to trace the calls to a 31-year-old woman who lives in Flint Township. The identity of the woman has not yet been revealed.
A model of threats at school
News of the woman’s arrest comes just weeks later threats of violence closed schools in Atherton for almost a week in October. School officials in this district informed authorities that several students had received threats of violence via an Airdrop message.
This, coupled with the fact that a longtime teacher in the Atherton School District had been arrested for having sex with a student, prompted authorities to close schools for four days at the end of October.
