Two students are in Franklin County Jail after a bomb threat at Zeigler-Royalton High School.
17-year-olds Darrel Dalton of Royalton and Zachary Barnett of Christopher were taken into custody after the school was evacuated Friday morning.
Superintendent George Wilkerson says that someone wrote on the wall of the boy’s bathroom that there were two bombs inside the school. The school was then evacuated, and students were sent to the elementary school gymnasium.
After bomb-sniffing dogs canvassed the area, no bombs were found.
Charges are expected to be filed Monday and bond has not been set for the two suspects yet. Wilkerson says both students have been suspended for 10 days.
