Three Lincoln Community High School students have been arrested in
connection with the bomb threat written last week on a mirror in a girl's restroom at
the school.

Kimberly D. Reebel, 18, and Molly M. Knowles, 17, were arrested by the Lincoln
Police Department around 2 p.m. Tuesday off school grounds. Alexandria K. Springer,
17, was arrested Saturday.

 All three are charged with the Class 3 felony of disorderly conduct. They are being
held on $30,000 bond.

"These arrests should send a message to the student body that these actions will not
be tolerated and that every investigative measure will be taken to identify, arrest
and prosecute those responsible," Lincoln Police Chief Stuart Erlenbush said in a
press release.

Erlenbush said the bomb threat was a simple case of three teenagers who did not want
to be at school that day.

"There is no doubt in my mind that is exactly what they wanted to do," Erlenbush
said. "Kids really don't think of the consequences of their actions.

"I don't think any of these girls came to school planning to do this. I don't think
it was premeditated in any shape, way or form."

The bomb threat was discovered around 7:10 a.m. Thursday. Students and teachers  already at the school were shuttled into the cafeteria and quickly informed of
the incident, while other students who were just arriving were prevented from
entering the school.

Classes, which were cancelled for the day, will be made up at the end of the year,
school officials said last week.

Security cameras in place throughout the school and interviews after the incident
narrowed down a list of suspects, Erlenbush said.
"It's public information and all the kids know it - there are cameras in that
school," said the chief. "Those certainly help. There were a number of things we did
to determine who was responsible.  ... I think we have got them all."

A 15-year-old juvenile had knowledge of the incident and police reports are being
reviewed to determine if any charges will be made against that student.
