Teen Questioned After Bomb Threat In Neosho, MO

Updated:

KOAM and FOX 14 arrived at the Neosho High School shortly before 2:00 p.m. on Wednesday, May 9th. Students were outside the building and at least three law enforcement vehicles were on scene.

The Neosho Police Department says they were alerted of a bomb threat around 1:30 p.m. Authorities say after arriving, the decision was made to evacuate the students from the building. The Joplin Police Department was called to help with investigation and used K9 units to search the building. The Newton County Sheriff's Office also assisted.

A 14-year-old male was taken into custody for questioning to the Newton County Juvenile Office.  The Neosho Police Department says this is an ongoing investigation into the validity of the threat.

The Neosho School District says students were dismissed at 3:10 and were allowed to leave after their bags were checked. Updates were posted on the district's Facebook page.

Crowder College's Technical Education Center was also put on lockdown as a precautionary measure after the bomb threat at Neosho High School. There are HS students who attend CTEC. The lockdown only affected CTEC, not the entire Crowder College campus. CTEC students were bussed to a designated location by the Neosho School District and Neosho Police Department. Crowder College officials say all students and staff were safe and gives credit to communication from the police department and school district.
