Two Central Hardin High School students have been identified as suspects who allegedly made multiple bomb threats to the school this year.

The juveniles, one male and one female, are charged with first-degree terroristic threatening, said Virgil Willoughby, spokesman for Elizabethtown Police Department. The students were identified through a witness, police said.

Four threats were made on the school building this year, causing multiple building evacuations. No threat to student and staff safety was found, police said.

The juveniles have been issued citations and will appear in court. Hardin County Juvenile Court proceedings are closed to the public.

Students who are found to have made threats such as these could face punishment up to expulsion from Hardin County Schools, Community Relations Director John Wright said.
