Bomb hoax culprit caught

13yo boy escapes with a caution

Bomb hoax culprit caught

A 13-year-old boy has been cautioned over Wednesday morning's bomb hoax at Palm Beach Currumbin High.

The campus was placed in lockdown twice when a cleaner found an envelope containing a white powder, and a threatening letter.


Tests on that powder have confirmed it was harmless, and a sweep of the school found no trace of any explosives.

The boy will be dealt with under the Youth Justices Act.
