QUARTZ HILL – Authorities said nothing suspicious was found at Quartz Hill High School Thursday after a bomb threat prompted a lockdown of the campus.
The incident began around 10:30 a.m., when someone called the school and claimed there was a bomb on campus, according to Lancaster Community Relations deputy Miguel Ruiz.
Deputies responded and joined school security in conducting a thorough and systematic search of the school, which lasted for about an hour, Ruiz said.
“No bomb was found, and at no time were any students or faculty in any harm,” Ruiz said.
Investigators are now attempting to trace the source of the call, Ruiz said.
“It is a crime to call in a false report of an emergency, especially to a school campus,” Ruiz said. “We are going to search for the suspect or suspects related to this crime.”
