Three Juveniles Detained In Connection With Wednesday's Bomb Threat

For the third straight day Parkersburg High School classes were disrupted by a bomb threat, and we know the police have suspects in custody.

Parkersburg Police Chief Gerald Board says three juveniles have been detained in connection with Wednesday's incident, which was reported at approximately 1:00 pm.

Students were back in class at 2:40 pm, a little more than half an hour before the normal class dismissal time.

School officials emphasize students were not sent home, but gathered in Stadium Field until school resumed.

Chief Board says the three individuals from Wednesday's threat face a detention hearing Thursday.

Another juvenile suspect has been detained in connection with Tuesday's threat.
