UPDATE: Female student arrested for multiple threats at L.D. Bell HS

After a thorough, 3-week long investigation into multiple threats made against L.D. Bell High School, the Hurst Police Department took a female student into custody this afternoon on campus.

The arrestee is accused of sending multiple online threats to students and faculty at L.D. Bell High School in Hurst-Euless-Bedford ISD beginning January 9th of this month and continuing for three days. Students and faculty received the threats via social media platforms and messaging apps.

The threats included bringing firearms and explosives to the school to harm the students and staff members. No evidence of firearms or explosives were discovered at the school, and at no time was there any legitimate danger to those who attend and work at the high school, says police.

The student was taken into custody at the school and transported to the Tarrant County Juvenile Detention Center. She has been charged with nine (9) felony counts of terrorist threat.

“The Hurst Police Department would like to express our sincere appreciation to the faculty and staff of LD Bell High School and to the HEB Independent School District members for their generous support, cooperation, and patience while dealing with this incident,” says Hurst PD.
