Increased police presence set for Thursday at Orange County School of the Arts after bomb threat

SANTA ANA — Authorities say a bomb threat emailed to some students at the Orange County School of the Arts in Santa Ana was not credible — but nevertheless police plan a large presence there Thursday.
About 20 students received through social media an anonymous threat that there would be a bomb on campus Thursday, according to school officials.
The students were alerted to the threat via a social media platform called Sarahah, school officials said in a letter Wednesday to parents, faculty and staff.
“Law enforcement takes every threat as credible until determined otherwise based on available intelligence, information and a corresponding investigation,” the letter says “Our (law enforcement) partners have performed that investigation and have determined there is no credible threat to our institution at this time. We want to assure you that student safety is one of the highest priorities we have.”
Out of an abundance of caution, Orange County Sheriff’s Department deputies and Santa Ana officers will be present at the school Thursday, Santa Ana police Cpl. Anthony Bertagna said Wednesday night.
