Two more students have been arrested and charged with terrorizing school campuses. On Monday, the Lafayette Police Department arrested a Paul Breaux Middle School student in connection to a bomb threat that caused an evacuation of the school’s campus. This is the second student arrested for terrorizing the Paul Breaux Middle School campus earlier this year.
The week before the bomb threat was made, another student falsely reported that there was a gun on campus resulting in a three hour lockdown of the school. That student was also charged with terrorizing and placed into the Lafayette Juvenile Deterntion Home.
Today, officers arrested and charged another Northside High School student with terrorizing following a social media threat that caused an evacuation of the school campus back in October. This is the second arrest made in relation to this incident and sixth arrest made for terrorizing a school campus this year.
LPSS would like to thank detectives with Lafayette Police Department's Youth Services Division for their steadfast commitment to locating those responsible for these disruptions. We will continue to work with our law enforcement partners to hold accountable any individuals choosing to terrorize our schools.
