Police have arrested an Oblong High School student who allegedly threatened to blow up the school.
Oblong Police Chief Chad Pusey reported Daniel Sanders, 18, rural Oblong, has been arrested on a charge of felony disorderly conduct for threatening to blow up the school with "C-4 and rockets."
Pusey said he received a call from the school that Sanders had made the threat. After interviewing him, Pusey said he believed that while Sanders did not make the threat in jest, he did not have ready access to explosives. He also said Sanders did not seem remorseful for making the threat.
"He said he got the idea from video games," Pusey said.
An inspection was made of the school and after interviewing Sanders, Pusey said he does not believe there was any danger to the school or students.
"In light of recent events we will do what we have to in order to keep everyone safe," Pusey said. "We will not take it lightly."
Sanders was taken to the Crawford County Jail, where he later posted $2,500 bond and was released.
