CEDAR FALLS (KWWL) -

A Cedar Falls teen faces a felony charge after phoning his school with a bomb threat Friday morning.

Officials say the 15-year-old called Peet Junior High in Cedar Falls saying a bomb would go off at a specific time. School staff and Cedar Falls officers searched the school and found nothing suspicious at the school or on the grounds.

Parents were notified of the threat in an email from the school just after 10:00 a.m. saying the call came shortly before school started. According to the email, no students were in danger at any time.

The ninth grader was booked into the Black Hawk County Jail and released to his parents.
