Three teenagers were arrested Monday in connection to a false report of a bomb threat at Lodi Middle School, according to Lodi police.

A teen called Lodi police at 11:13 a.m. Thursday stating that there was going to be a bombing at the South Ham Lane school, police said. Students were evacuated by school staff to a field away from the buildings as officers accompanied school employees to search each room.

There was no bomb, police said.

On Monday, Officer Heather Shaw investigated the incident and determined who the caller was. Shaw said she determined that three male teens participated in the incident, and they confessed.

One teen, 13, was arrested on suspicion of possessing stolen property, making a false bomb report and misuse of an emergency phone line, police said. Another suspect, 14, was arrested on suspicion of possessing stolen property and vandalism, while a 13-year-old is suspected of petty theft and vandalism.

All three students were released to the school and then to their parents.

Police said the cellphone used to make the false bomb threat was stolen from another student the same day.

Should graduations return to the Grape Bowl?

They cite limited seating, costs and unpredictable weather at the Grape Bowl. But others say graduations at the Grape Bowl are an important Lodi tradition, and one reason many supported renovating the stadium. What do you think?
