Huntington School Bus Bomb Scare Probed
Suffolk County police responded to a bomb scare on a bus heading to Manor Plains High School in Huntington that turned out to be a false alarm on Tuesday morning.
A student reported finding a message written on a bus seat indicating bomb threat, which prompted school officials to call police at about 11 a.m., according to a police spokeswoman.
Police searched the bus but did not find any explosive devices, authorities said. No arrests have been made in the case.
Manor Plains is an alternative high school run by Western Suffolk BOCES. School officials were not immediately available for comment.
The incident comes a day after a 17-year-old North Amityville girl was arrested for writing a note threatening to blow up Amityville High School.
