Custodian Arrested on School Bomb Threat


Sweeney, Kathleen, The Florida Times Union


A Morse Avenue Elementary School custodian is accused of calling the school and claiming a bomb was going to explode.

Patricia Anne Casey, 53, of the 7500 block of Pheasant Run Drive was arrested Wednesday on the charge of making a bomb threat. She is being held on $10,000 bond at the Duval County jail.

Police said someone called the school at 6084 Morse Ave. about 1:30 p.m. Wednesday and said, "There is a bomb in the school. If you let the kids out at 3 p.m., it will go boom."

The receptionist dialed *57 to activate a trace on the call, police said. She told investigators the caller's voice sounded like a woman who cleans the school.

Students were evacuated, but no devices were found, police said. The custodian had called in sick to school that day but denied making the call.
