Police on Monday accused a Raleigh teen of writing a message to her principal on a school bathroom wall, saying that a bomb was set to explode.
Investigators also charged a friend of the teen with encouraging her to write the false report so that school would be dismissed for the day, according to arrest warrants filed Monday at the Wake County Magistrate’s Office.
Baby Girl Freeman, 17, of Garner has been charged with one felony count of making a false bomb report at a public building, court records show.
The second student, Kymiah Unique Dunn, also 17, of Raleigh was charged by police with one felony count of aiding and abetting, court records show.
The incident occurred last week, on Wednesday, police reported.
Investigators have accused Freeman of writing on the bathroom wall at the Mary E. Phillips High School that there was “a device designed to damage and destroy the building by exploding,” according to the arrest warrants.
Police say Dunn encouraged Freeman to make the false report by telling her “of previous experiences when school was dismissed for [an] extended period of time,” court records show.
Both girls remained in custody at the Wake County jail Monday night in lieu of $5,000 bail each. The students must be released into the custody of their parents and abide by all household rules, court records show.
