FLAGLER COUNTY, Fla. — The Flagler County Sheriff’s Office made an arrest after investigating a bomb threat made on Buddy Taylor Middle School.


This arrest comes after a chaotic week for Flagler County public schools, during which Buddy Taylor Middle School and others received threatening calls from May 14 to May 17.

The 13-year-old, whom we are not naming due to their minor status, called BTMS around 10:47 a.m., saying, “The school will be blown up at 11.” The school was locked down around 10:48 a.m.
