Two arrested in connection to false bomb threats at Alhambra High *Updated

updated 4.12pm

Alhambra Unified School District Superintendant Donna Perez said that an assembly will be held to deal with the prank calls and arrests and that the district will be handing out information to students on crime-free campuses.

"We need to talk with all of our students," Perez said.

The student and former student arrested for false bomb threats at Alhambra High School were both juveniles, according to Alhambra Police Department sergeant Garrett Kennedy. He said that there were seven calls total, not the six generally reported, in the past two months. Not all calls required lockdown.

In what he described as a large expenditure of resources at each threat "the school gets together with the police department, we shut down all the streets around the school and from there the campus is checked." Kennedy said they are not yet releasing names or how the teenage males were caught. He said that they have not had any copycat incidents at Mark Keppel or San Gabriel high schools.

An Alhambra High School student and a former student were arrested on Monday for false bomb threats, according to City New Service.

Alhambra police Sgt. Garrett Kennedy did not release names and said that police are still investigating to see if additional people were involved. More from CNS:

He said detectives were preparing a case to present to the Los Angeles County District Attorney's Office, and the Alhambra Unified School District issued a statement saying it will proceed with “appropriate disciplinary action.''

The problem has been ongoing at the school, which has received at least a half-dozen phoned-in bomb threats since the beginning of the year, most recently on March 15. No explosives have been found, but the threats havedisrupted the campus at 101 S. Second St. each time.
