Second student makes bomb threat

DUNDEE—The Yates County Sheriff’s Department has identified two youths in two different bomb threats at Dundee Central School.
The most recent incident happened Monday, Dec. 6.  According to authorities, at 1:24 p.m. Dundee elementary school officials found a note saying there was a bomb in the building.  The Yates County Sheriff’s Department said it investigated, found no explosive device, and a juvenile suspect was identified.
Authorities said the suspect was turned over to the Juvenile Aid Division of the Yates County Sheriff’s Office.  Sheriff Ron Spike said it was a 12-year-old boy.
Last week, the sheriff’s department arrested a 14-year-old Dundee student for making a bomb threat at the school,  Thursday, Dec. 2.
According to authorities, the investigation showed that the same student who reported the incident was also the student who make the threat.  Dundee Superintendant Kathy Ring said the threat in question was a suspicious note.  Dundee students and staff were evacuated shortly before 10 a.m. on Thursday.
“This causes such alarm, such anxiety, such disruption,” said Ring.  She added, “the community has been through an awful lot.”
Ring said there were four bomb threats during the last school year.
The sheriff’s department said the juvenile was referred to family court to answer charges at a later date.  The New York State Police and Ontario County Sheriff’s Department assisted in the investigation, including bomb sniffing dogs from both agencies.
“It’s sad to see the disruption and expense these pranksters cause,” said Sheriff Spike.
