It was another day of, for the second day in a row, classes at Parkersburg High School were disrupted by a bomb threat.

This time, however, the events had a different outcome.

That individual was detained by police shortly after students returned to classes, an hour and fifteen minutes after today's threat was called into 911.

"Through modern technology, you can track some of these phone calls," Parkersburg Police Chief Gerald Board said at a news conference Tuesday afternoon. "The person who was charged with these crimes was at the location where the call came back to. It was in Pinewood Village in South Parkersburg."

The threat came shortly after 11:00 Tuesday morning.

Students were moved from classes to the high school field house...and returned to class around 1P.M.

"The prosecuting attorney will prosecute to the full extent of the law," Superintendent Bill Niday said after classes resumed. "That was done last year when we had those situations, and which I am confident will be done this year."

The individual's bond has been set at $50,000.

    I'm guessing that this individual's name isn't being released because this individual is a minor?
