11-year-old girl charged with Canfield bomb threat

Posted: Updated:

CANFIELD, Ohio - Charges have been filed against a fifth grader, for making a bomb threat at Canfield Village Middle School, last week.

Police identified an 11-year-old girl, with help from school officials.

Canfield Superintendent Alex Geordan says there will be an expulsion hearing, held within the next 10 days.

The superintendent said a note was found in the gym, as students were entering the building last week, but nothing was found in a search.

Police recommend she be charged with making false alarms, a misdemeanor charge.

Geordan says this scenario is unusual because of the age of the child involved.
