Bomb Threat at Charles County Schools Being Investigated

March 22, 2023

Investigators with the Charles County Sheriff’s Office Homeland Security and Intelligence Section and school resource officers are working with Charles County Public Schools to investigate a bomb threat that was sent to students via an air-dropped message to their cell phones earlier today.

The threat indicated a bomb would be detonated at all Charles County schools on March 24th, and students reported the message to school administrators.

A preliminary investigation shows the sender’s source is unknown; however, investigators learned schools throughout the nation have been receiving similar air-dropped messages about bomb threats.
