Idaho and Australian Teen Tied to Threats Across Southern Idaho

OISE, Idaho (AP) — A southwest Idaho teenager police say is responsible for more than a dozen bomb threats to high schools and retail stores across southern Idaho has been taken into custody. Ada County Sheriff’s Office spokeswoman Andrea Dearden says the 16-year-old Meridian boy was taken into custody Friday at his home.

Police say the boy and a teenage male in Australia worked together via online chats to make the threats. Police say the Meridian teen provided phone numbers to the Australian teen who made the calls over the phone and through a computer network.

The Meridian teen was booked into the Ada County Juvenile Detention Center and faces a felony charge of making a false report of explosives. Ada County officials say they are working with Australian authorities in dealing with the teenager there.
