Student threatens to bomb school on Ash Wednesday

A juvenile was taken into custody Wednesday after school administrators at Holy Trinity School received an email that “contained threatening information,” according to the school’s principal and the Bellevue Police Department. Principal Katie Jacobs sent out a letter to Holy Trinity families regarding the situation Wednesday.

She said the email that consisted of made-up contact information had threatening information toward the school’s students.

School administrators immediately notified the Diocese of Covington and the Bellevue Police Department after receiving the email.

Bellevue police said they were at the school from 6:30 a. m. to 1 p. m. while investigating, where they took the juvenile into custody.

According to police, the juvenile, who’s from Burlington, Kentucky, has been charged with terroristic threatening in the second degree.

Police officers then escorted students to the church for Ash Wednesday services. After school officials and police investigated, they determined that there was no danger to Holy Trinity School.

“We thank our law enforcement officers for taking serious any threat against our school and pray that God will continue to protect them as they work to keep our school community a safe place to learn.
