Police: 2 arrested in Liberty High School bomb threat

BETHLEHEM, Pa. - 2 students have been arrested in relation to the bomb threat made at Liberty High School Friday.

A 15 year old and a 16 year old -- a sophomore and a junior -- were arrested by School Resource Officers for the bomb threat and are in custody at the Bethlehem Police Department awaiting processing. 

Both students will be charged with terroristic threats, a felony grade charge, according to a release from Chief Mark DiLuzio of Bethlehem Police Department. 

They will be detained in Northampton County Detention pending court action in Northampton County Juvenile Court. 

"Incidents like this are unnecessary in today’s society. They cause undue stress and anxiety to many students and parents of students," Chief DiLuzio said. "Incidents of this type will not be tolerated at any school or any other location in the City of Bethlehem."
