Antioch police arrest boy in high school bomb threats, three more made Thursday morning

There were three additional bomb threats called in to the Antioch Police Department concerning area schools this morning. The first was called in at 7:43 AM stating there was a bomb at Black Diamond Middle School. The second two calls were made at 9:39 AM and 10:50 AM; both of those calls were reports of bombs, again, at Deer Valley High School.

The Antioch Police Department sent officers to all three of these events, responding in mutual cooperation with the Antioch Unified School District to evaluate the credibility of each report. All of the incidents this morning and over the past four days have been determined to be hoaxes. At no time were students of any of the effected schools in any danger.

Following-up on a lead after the third bomb threat of the morning, APD Officers and Detectives were able to identify and subsequently arrest a juvenile in connection with these false bomb threats. The juvenile later admitted to making the bogus calls to investigators.

Investigators are still looking into the false bomb threat made at Antioch High School, yesterday.

Anyone with information regarding this case is encouraged to call Detective Koch with the Antioch Police Department at (925)779-6895. You may also text a tip to 274637 (CRIMES) using key word ANTIOCH
