Yates County Deputies charged a juvenile with second degree falsely reporting a fire/explosion on Dec. 6 after Dundee Central School officials reported locating a note which indicated there was a bomb in the Dundee Central School.

Through investigation, no explosive device was found in the building. According to Sgt. John Warner, a juvenile suspect was identified and the case has been turned over the Juvenile Aid Division of the Yates County Sheriff’s Office. This is the second incident of this nature in the past week.

On Dec. 2 a 14-year-old was charged with falsely reporting an incident in the first degree after a reported bomb threat at the Dundee School. 

An investigation determined the juvenile that reported the incident was the one who actually made the threat.  The juvenile was referred to family court to answer charges at a later date. 

Assisting the Yates County Sheriff’s Department at the scene were the New York State Police and bomb dogs from the NYS Police and the Ontario County Sheriff’s Department.
