Second school bomb threat in Lowell also on restroom wall

The bomb threat that caused Lowell Elementary School to evacuate Friday morning was written on a bathroom wall.

If that scenario sounds familiar, it’s because Holbrook Middle School – also in Lowell– was evacuated Thursday afternoon after a student reported to a school resource officer a bomb threat had been written on the wall of a school restroom.

Police said Lowell Elementary evacuated around 10 a.m. Friday morning after a student reported the threat to a teacher.

A number of agencies collaborated to clear the building, including K-9 units from the Gaston County Sheriff’s Office. In both cases, nothing suspicious was found at either school and any suspects have yet to be indentified.

Both investigations are ongoing. Anyone with information is asked to call Crime Stoppers 704-861-8000; Cramerton or Lowell Police 704-866-3300.
