Student Charged for Making Bomb Threat at Blue Mountain

A student has been charged and locked up in prison for making a bomb threat at Blue Mountain last week.

According to the Pennsylvania State Police at Schuylkill Haven, on 10/02/17, sometime between 10:30am and 11:00am, the incident occurred when Ivy Heinly, 18, Reading (Orwigsburg at the time of the incident), entered the girls bathroom on the first floor of the building and left a hand written note in a bathroom stall on a piece of toilet paper stating "the school is to be blown up on 10/02/17 5th period." 

When the note was found, the students and staff were immediately evacuated from the building to a safe location outside. 

A check of the  bathrooms, classrooms, and other areas of the school was conducted with negative results. 

After it was determined there was no bomb found and there was no longer any threat towards the students and the staff at the school, the students and staff were then permitted to go back into the building at approximately 12:15pm to resume activities. 

Heinly was charged with felony charges of Causing or Risking a Castastrophe, Terroristic Threats, Threat to Use Weapons of Mass Destruction, and several other charges regarding the matter.

On Thursday,  Heinly was arraigned before Magisterial District Judge James Ferrier, who set bail at $5,000 (10%).

Heinly was unable to post the bail, transported and incarcerated at the Schuylkill County Prison.
