Yorktown, Va. – Two juveniles have been arrested and charged for allegedly writing threatening statements on bathroom walls at Tabb High School.

On October 20th, a custodian reported a suspicious threatening statement written on the stall in a boy’s bathroom at the school and the York-Poquoson Sheriff’s Office immediately launched an investigation into the matter.

During their investigation, a similar statement was discovered on the wall in a girl’s bathroom.

Investigators quickly determined that the second incident was a copycat crime and a 17-year-old female was identified as the alleged offender in that incident.

She was arrested and detained at the Merrimac Center on October 22nd and charged with threats to bomb or damage a building and destruction of property.

On October 27th, deputies arrested and charged a 16-year-old male with threats to bomb or damage a building and destruction of property for the first incident.
