UK teenager arrested for online threats to local school

British authorities arrested a UK teen Friday morning in the string of bomb threat hoaxes against West Michigan schools.

The arrest was the result of a joint investigation between a British organized crime unit and the FBI. But computer forensics analysts with the Ottawa County Sheriff’s Department also played a big role.

Investigators say the 16-year-old British boy was responsible for online threats against Coopersville, Hudsonville and Allendale Schools. He’s also a suspect in a series of threats made to airports and airlines, which forced the grounding of planes.

There is no evidence that teen was involved in threats against Rockford Schools. A Rockford High School student was charged in that case.
