CURRITUCK COUNTY, N.C. (WAVY) — A suspect younger than 16 years of age was charged Thursday for a bomb threat at Currituck County High School earlier in the week.

Around 7:15 a.m. Tuesday, the Currituck County Sheriff’s Office was notified of a bomb threat written on a bathroom wall at the school, according to Lindsay Voorhees with the sheriff’s office. Deputies immediately started an investigation and they, with an explosive-detecting K-9, cleared the building by 9 a.m.
