Authorities say a Starmont High School student is facing a felony charge after a bomb threat last week. The Fayette County Sheriff’s Office says 16-year old Megghan Recker of Stanley was charged Monday with False Reports.

Starmont schools were evacuated last Tuesday after note revealing a bomb threat was found in a restroom at the high school. Authorities were called in to investigate and search the school grounds, but an explosive device was never found.

Recker, who is a junior at Starmont, has been referred to juvenile court services and will make an appearance at a later date. She has been released to her parents until then. The case remains under investigation, and the sheriff’s office says more students could be charged.
