OPD, FBI agents thwart terrorist threat aimed at Opelika High School

A Pearl High School student is under arrest after admitting that he lied about a potential school threat, police said.

Students overheard the five 15-year-old freshmen discussing the details of their plan at the lunch table, according to a police report.

Police say the students told investigators that they never intended on carrying out the attack and that it was strictly a joke. No lockdown was necessary.

Investigation did not locate any credible plan of action on the suspect's part and there appears no present danger to students of the Opelika City Schools. According to the Alliance Police Department, there is now no evidence any of the students involved had attempted to obtain any actual weapons.

Another student, 17-year-old Launte Ahmadre Holmes of Lancaster, was arrested and charged on February 19 with disturbing schools in relation to the threat, police say.

The families of the 5 students cooperated in the investigation.

All five of the students have been charged with a misdemeanor count of making false alarms.

According to a statement by Alliance police Capt. John Jenkins, the quick action by school administrators and the school resource officers - who followed established emergency plans and were assisted the patrol and detectives bureaus - all ensured no students or staff were endangered.
