Teens Arrested for False Reports at Local Schools

BRYAN - Police arrested two teenagers for making up a story about seeing a man with a gun at a Bryan Middle School.

Police say a 15 and 16 year old called 9-1-1 three times within the last two weeks and made false reports. The first call claimed a man with a gun was at Stephen F. Austin Middle School.

Four days later investigators say the teens claimed a written bomb threat was found at the same school. And the next day police say they called 9-1-1 again about a bomb threat. They traced the calls to Bryan High School and tracked down the teens.

Both have been charged with making a false report and abuse of 9-1-1. The false report charge is a felony.
