VERO BEACH, Fla. (AP) - Authorities say they've arrested a Vero
Beach High School sophomore for making multiple bomb threats.

The Indian River County Sheriff's Office reports that the 17-year-old male student was escorted out of the school in handcuffs Thursday morning.

Deputies say six bomb threats had been made to the school since March 3, four of which were in the last week.

Investigators say cell phone records led them to the teen's
phone.

He was charged with two counts of making a false report of
planting a bomb, explosive or weapon of mass destruction.

Sheriff Deryl Loar says the boy will be charged as an adult, meaning he
could face up to 15 years in prison for each count.
