The Spartanburg County Sheriff’s Office has arrested a teen in connection with a bomb threat that was called into Broome High School Monday.
17-year-old Michael Harvey Elgin of Pacolet, a student at the school, is charged with making a bomb threat and disturbing school. Authorities say students at Broome High informed the School Resource Officer that Elgin borrowed a classmate’s mobile phone and used it to call the threat into the school office–while he was in class at the school. The charges against Elgin will be heard in General Sessions Court. Elgin has been booked into the Spartanburg County Detention Center. His bond has not been set.
