Julien Briaire, Trabuco Hills High School Senior, Faces Felony for Campus Bomb Threat
A Trabuco Hills High School senior was arrested Thursday afternoon after a bomb threat was emailed to school officials while he was on the Mission Viejo campus, according to the sheriff's department.
Julien Briaire, 18, of Foothill Ranch, was arrested about 4:30 p.m. at the school, says Jim Amormino, the Orange County sheriff's spokesman.
Briaire was booked on suspicion of making a false bomb threat, a felony, Amormino tells City News Service.
Investigators obtained search warrants that allowed them to trace the email back to the campus and, eventually, Briaire.
