LOUISVILLE, KY. (WDRB) -- The Meade County Sheriff says he's giving whoever made two threats that led to an evacuation of Meade County High School until the end the of the day to surrender.
The sheriff made a statement at the school Wednesday morning, saying he will work with anyone who turns themselves in, but if they do not, he intends to prosecute that person or persons to the full extent of the law, regardless of how old they are.
The high school confirms that nearly one-third of its students were out Wednesday. It's not known whether that was due to Tuesday's threats or whether it was the last day of school before Christmas break.
Meade County High School was evacuated Tuesday after two notes containing bomb threats were found in two days. No bombs were found.
