RALEIGH, N.C. (WNCN) – Some sharp detective work by the Raleigh Police helped identify what is believed to be the source of a bomb threat at Millbrook High School March 7.

That day, multiple students at Millbrook got a message reading, “I’m gonna blow up Millbrook at 11:30 a.m. today, so if you have friends start telling them bye.”

The number was tracked to a voice over IP application hosted by a company called Pinger, according to a search warrant.

The police contacted the company for information and records. The internet protocol information came back to Millbrook and police were able to connect the phone to a man whose wife has a child at Millbrook.

The phone was found to have connected with an internet protocol address at Millbrook next to the student’s classroom at the time of the threat.

The police identified an Apple 6S gray phone, and the juvenile refused to unlock the device. So the police requested to be able to search it.

The juvenile is not identified in the court documents.
