FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. (AP) — Sheriff's officials say a 12-year-old boy has been arrested after making a bomb threat at his South Florida school. The student was arrested Thursday after detectives with the Broward Sheriff’s Office identified him as the person who sent an email threat to Renaissance Charter School in Tamarac in Tamarac. The email warned that a bomb was at the school and would blow up in 10 minutes. Deputies responded to the school, which was evacuated after the threat was received. A bomb squad didn’t find any devices on the campus near Fort Lauderdale.
