BEND, OR -- A Eugene teen is believed to be responsible for last week’s bomb threat at Mountain View High School. Bend Police say the 14-year-old boy sent the threat through the school’s website, last Wednesday, saying a former student would blow up a math class on Friday. By Monday, school district IT staff and the FBI were able to track the IP address of the sender and agents contacted the suspect at his Eugene home.

 

He reportedly believed he was threatening the school of a former online girlfriend. Police confirm the girl does not attend Bend's Mountain View High School, but may attend a school with the same name in another state.
 
The Deschutes County District Attorney will determine what, if any, criminal charges will be filed against the boy. Bend-La Pine Schools Superintendent Shay Mikalson said in a statement, "Our partnerships in Central Oregon are second to none and I applaud all of those who work diligently to keep our schools safe." He added, "Threats to our schools will not be tolerated and we will work hard to find their source. We support the prosecution of those who make threats to our schools to the fullest extent fo the law."
