Bomb Threat in Kirtland


February 23, 2018

On Friday Feb. 16, 2018, Detectives with the San Juan County Sheriff’s office were dispatched to Kirtland Central High School to investigate a bomb threat made in one of the restrooms on campus. After interviews were conducted and handwriting samples were taken, Detectives had a suspect with similar writing as the threat in the restroom. Detectives were able to obtain a confession from the 17 year old, male student. The juvenile was detained on a 4th degree felony charge of making a bomb scare and booked into the Juvenile Detention Center.

These types of threats have been a recurring issue at this school and Detectives are frequently on campus dealing with similar cases. “We need tougher laws in NM in regards to threats against our schools. We are currently working on a county unified prevention plan. In the meantime, speak to your children about the seriousness of these threats. Monitor your child’s social media and cellphone use. If your child is combating mental health issues, please try to get them help. All threats against our school will be investigated using all resources. We will charge those involved to the fullest extent. Help us bring peace back to San Juan County!”-Under-sheriff Ferrari
