Threats to local schools came from New Jersey

GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. (WOOD) — The person who called in fake bomb threats to three metro Grand Rapids schools last month is a kid from New Jersey, authorities say.

East Grand Rapids High School, Grand Rapids Christian High School and Union High School each received voicemails with the bomb threats. As a result, East Grand Rapids was evacuated Oct. 29 and a shelter in place order was issued at Grand Rapids Christian. Grand Rapids Public Schools determined the threat to Union was not credible, so it didn't lock down.

All three messages included the name of a local juvenile and one listed his address, Kent County Prosecutor Chris Becker said in a Tuesday release, but he's not the person who left them.
