Lincoln police have arrested a 17-year-old Lincoln High School student in connection with a bomb threat called into the school Friday, authorities said.
The false report, made about 11:30 a.m., resulted in the school being evacuated and students being sent home early before the call was determined to be a hoax.
The suspect, an Auburn resident, was arrested Tuesday afternoon in Auburn with the assistance of the Placer County Probation Department, said Jill Thompson, a Lincoln city spokeswoman.
He was booked into Placer County Juvenile Hall on suspicion of making a bomb threat, falsely reporting an emergency and for violating his probation, Thompson said.
Because it was an active threat, police were able to obtain without a warrant information about the phone used to make the call.
That phone led them to another student, who implicated the Auburn teen, police said.
