MONTGOMERY, AL (WSFA) -

The Montgomery Police Department has arrested a 14-year-old Bellingrath Middle School student for allegedly threatening to blow up the school.

According to MPD, a written threat was found on a bathroom wall at the middle school Friday. The female student was charged with one count of making a terrorist threat.

The student was placed in the Montgomery Juvenile Detention Facility.

This is the second 14-year-old MPS student arrested on this charge this week. Earlier this week, a 14-year-old at McKee Middle School was arrested after allegedly calling in a bomb threat to 911.

"This is not a prank," said Montgomery Police Chief Kevin Murphy. "These are criminal acts that will result in criminal charges. Those who engage in such conduct must be prepared to face the consequences."
