INDIANAPOLIS (WISH) - An 18-year-old Indianapolis man has been arrested after making multiple bomb threats to an Indianapolis school.
The Division of Homeland Security says Rashad Lesure was arrested Friday. He is accused of making multiple bomb threats that led to a lock down and search of Indianapolis Metropolitan High School, where he is a student.
Six threatening phone calls were made to the school, with threats made about bombs set to go off at a specific time and location, according to a release.
Threats were also made toward staff members.
Several searches were conducted by bomb squads. Homeland Security Chief Gary Coons stressed that all threats to public safety will be taken seriously.
