CEDAR HILL, Mo. – An 18-year-old student faces felony charges for making a terrorist threat Northwest Senior High School.
The probable cause statement said a classmate heard Chance Foy of High Ridge claim that he had a bomb in his locker that was going to explode in four hours. A second student told investigators that he heard Foy state he had a "boom boom" at the school and that Foy had previously told him that "boom boom" means bomb.
The school resource officer was notified about the threat Tuesday by school staff at around 11:30 a.m. The school was evacuated and additional officers were sent to the school.
The school was cleared by bomb-sniffing dogs, the Arnold Police Department, St. Louis County Police Department, and St. Louis City Police Department. Nothing was found on school property.
According to court documents, during the investigation, Foy admitted to making the statements because he was arguing with another student. Foy is being held on $50,000 cash-only bond.
Northwest High School is located at 6005 Cedar Hill Road.
