Hernando student accused of making 6 bomb threats

- It’s been a rough week for students, families, and officials in Hernando County.  Six bomb threats were made against Central High School, and it wasn’t until this afternoon that an arrest was finally made.

The sheriff’s office says Mizella Robinson, a 17-year-old, is suspected of calling in all six threats.

According to investigators, the threats were a hoax, but still caused chaos as they tried to uncover the person behind them.

Sheriff Al Nienhius didn’t go into detail but says the teen was savvy with technology and threw investigators off as they tried to find out who was behind the calls.

The sheriff wants the community to know they will work tirelessly to bring this girl to justice, and warn others that this behavior will result in serious consequences

“Students should learn from this,” he warned.  “We will try to track them down. We are good at this, we do this every day, and somebody who does something wrong has to be lucky all the time and forever more. We only have to get lucky once. And I use the word lucky loosely, but I think it's a lot of hard work and we do it every day and we have some good people and we will get to the bottom of it."

The sheriff’s office says the threats stretched their resources thin and cost them thousands of dollars.
