Central Marin Police Authority Press Release

Student In Custody for Bomb Threat

Larkspur, CA – September 29, 2017.  A Redwood High School student was arrested this morning for making a telephone bomb threat to the school last week.

On Tuesday, September 19th a message was left on the school’s anonymous tip line stating that there would be a bomb at the school that day.  The call resulted in the evacuation of the school and all classes were cancelled for the remainder of the day.  Central Marin Police Authority detectives have been working diligently on this case and their investigation revealed that a phone number masking program was used to leave the voice mail message.  Further investigation led to the identification of the responsible party.  The suspect was taken into custody at school today without incident.  He is a 17-year-old senior and Tiburon resident.  He was booked at Marin County Juvenile Hall on felony charges of making terrorist threats and making a bomb threat, as well as possession of a controlled substance.

There has been no evidence uncovered to suggest a link between this suspect and yesterday’s graffiti threat.    The investigation into the graffiti threat case is continuing.  In addition to the criminal charges, the school will be reviewing internal disciplinary penalties for the student.  We want to thank Principal David Sondheim and his staff, not only for their assistance in this case, but for the strong partnership forged between the school and the police authority.

Anyone with further information about this incident or the graffiti threat case is asked to contact Det. Cpl. Sean Kerr at skerr@centralmarinpolice.org or Det. Cpl. Michael Mejia at mmejia@centralmarinpolice.org.
