Valley Middle School Clear After Bomb Scare

by The Editors on May 12, 2011

Vms LogoCarlsbad’s Valley Middle School was on lockdown this morning (May 12, 2011) from 10:50 AM to 11:17 AM after one student reportedly mentioned a bomb on the campus. Parents of students at Valley received the following text after the school was cleared and reopned.

Students are safe. VMS was on lockdown from 10:50 until 11:17 as a preventative measure after an unconfirmed report by a student of the possibility of a bomb.

According to the Carlsbad Police Department one student was in custody for “making a threat” following the lockdown. This is the second bomb scare in Carlsbad in a little over a week. The first was on May 4, 2011 when a “suspicious device” was found at the Cole Library.

Hopefully this one was simply a misguided middle school prank, as 10News is now reporting.
