Second lock down at West Carter High School

Jan. 10, 2013 — A day after being evacuated because of a bomb threat, West Carter High School was locked down Thursday afternoon after another threatening note was found inside a textbook.

“We found the note and saw that it was dated for today. We took the proper precautions and everything is all clear now,” said Olive Hill Police Chief Bobby Hall when asked why the school was locked down.

Other than information about the date, Hall was unable to offer any other specific details concerning the note’s contents.

Parents lined up outside the school waiting for the lockdown to end rushed inside to pick up their children once the building was cleared to re-open.

Olive Hill Police have not given any information concerning suspects, and no arrests have been made in response to either threat.

Joe Lewis can be reached at or by telephone at 286-4201.
