Teen who made threats to stay in foster care

December 09, 1999

A 13-year-old Williamsport girl who admitted making threats to blow up her school last fall was placed in foster care Wednesday in Washington County Juvenile Court.

The charge lodged against the teenager for the Oct. 1 incident at the Alternative Learning Center was interrupting school activities.

At that time, she was removed from her home and placed in foster care and has been there ever since.

Washington County Circuit Judge Frederick Wright on Wednesday heard Assistant Washington County State's Attorney Susan Lochbaum describe the incident.

When the girl arrived at school that morning, she was described as agitated because of something that happened on the bus.

During fourth period, the girl said she wished the school would blow up. She further said she would like to put a bomb in the school and make sure all the teachers and students she hates were there.
