PHELAN:(VVNG.com)- Authorities announced the arrest of a Phelan teenager after making false bomb threats to Loma Linda University Medical Center and Grand Terrace High School.

According to a press release, on Tuesday, December, 8, 2015 at approximately 9:54 am, a male suspect called the Loma Linda University Medical Center and said he was “Making a bomb and the hospital better be ready.” A few minutes later, the same male suspect called Grand Terrace High School and said there was a bomb on the campus. Both bomb threats were called from the same phone number.

Sheriff Detectives later discovered that a third bomb threat was made at an apartment complex in the city of San Bernardino. The caller’s identification showed the same phone number as the other two bomb threats with the name John Davis.

The bomb threats prompted thorough searches and evacuations of all three of the locations, however no suspicious devices were ever located.

According to his Facebook profile "John Davis", shortly after he called in a bomb threat to Grand Terrace High School he made a post to his 405 friends with a caption "crazy tho" along with an article of the school being evacuated. (photo Facebook)
