Girl Charged With Library Bomb Threat

NAPLES, Fla. (AP) — A 12-year-old girl has been charged with making a bomb threat at a southwest Florida public library.

Naples police say a Collier County Library branch was evacuated Wednesday morning after a worker found a note in the book depository that threatened to “blow up” the library. A sheriff’s office K-9 searched the library but did not find any explosives.

An investigation led Naples detectives to a group of students from the nearby Gulfview Middle School. Those interviews led to police identifying the girl who reportedly left the note.

According to a police report, the girl told detectives that she was sorry for her actions, and it was only meant it to be a joke. She was charged with threat to place or discharge a destructive device. Police did not release her name.
