Three teens have been charged in connection to a threat to the Livonia Central School District, according to the Livingston County Sheriff's Office.
On Wednesday around 4:45 p.m., the school district received a message on their school tip line warning of bomb being hidden in the school and alerting that it would go off the following day. A second message was later sent stating the message wasn’t sent intentionally.
The Livonia School administration and the deputies immediately deployed numerous resources to assure that the school was safe, including K-9 "Kane" and his handler Deputy Matthew Moran.
A physical search of the school was also performed by deputies and Livonia School personnel. The Sheriff's Office Criminal Investigations Division was tracked the source of the online threat.
On Thursday, investigators and school officials were able to identify three students -- two 15-year-olds and a 16-year-old -- that were responsible for the threat.
All three teens were charged with felony falsely reporting an incident in the second degree.
The 15-year-olds were referred to Family Court and the 16-year-old was charged as an adult and will appear in criminal court on the matter.
Deputies say the names of the suspects are being withheld due to their ages.
