DRAPER, Utah — Police are searching for a suspect after a false bomb threat was called in Monday morning.

According to Lt. Dustin Willie with the Draper Police Department, a call came in at 11:54 p.m. by a person claiming to have planted bombs outside the high school. The caller gave the location and details of the supposed bomb.

Students were kept inside the school for safety for an hour and 45 minutes.

Willie said there were initial details that lead police to believe the threat “might not be credible.”

A bomb squad and K9s responded to the school and found no credible threat.

Police are investigating who the caller is to arrest a suspect, Willie said a bomb threat could be considered a terroristic threat, which is a felony charge.
