THIBODAUX, La. (AP) — Two South Lafourche High students have been arrested after a bomb scare at the school.

Lafourche Parish Sheriff Craig Webre tells The Courier (http://bit.ly/1OT0cK5) the boys, ages 14 and 16, were booked Monday on charges of communicating of false information of a planned bombing on school property.

Webre said a note found Monday in the boys' restroom warned of a bomb being detonated, but detectives determined the threat was not credible.

This was the second bomb threat at a Lafourche high school in a week, the first occurring Dec. 1 at Central Lafourche. In that incident, a threatening note was also found in the boys' restroom and the suspects were arrested on the same charge.
