Ahmed the Clockmaker’s Texas School Evacuated After BOMB THREAT

Earlier this month Irving, Texas high school student Ahmed Mohamed was briefly arrested after bringing a suitcase clock to school that looked like a bomb.

Two separate investigators who studied the image of Mohamed’s device provided by Irving, Texas police concluded that Mohamed did not make the clock. Both conclude that Mohamed disassembled a manufactured clock and installed it in a large pencil box without its casing. And both say it is possible it was done to provoke suspicion or to resemble a bomb.

Irving Mayor Beth Van Duyne told Glenn Beck that President Obama had tweeted about the case even before pictures of the so-called “clock” were publicly available.

Today Ahmed’s school was evacuated after a bomb threat was called in to the school.
Breitbart.com reported:

A bomb threat was called into MacArthur High School this morning, prompting an immediate evacuation at the same Irving, Texas, high school where freshman Ahmed Mohamed brought in a homemade clock-in-a-box on Sept. 14 that school officials deemed a “hoax bomb.”

Police spokesman James McClellan confirmed that someone called the school’s main phone at 9:45 AM from an anonymous number and said a bomb would explode in 30 minutes. According to KDFW-4 (FOX), school officials took the call seriously. Teachers and staff evacuated the school, moving all students to the football field while police swept the campus, searching each building. Officers found nothing suspicious, giving an “all clear” and students were allowed to return to class around 10:45 AM.

Police called the bomb threat a “hoax” and continue to investigate the incident, objectively to locate the individual behind the bomb threat, who, when found, could face state felony charges and receive from two to six months in jail plus a $10,000 fine.

During the threat, some parents chose to pick up their children after getting a text alert or automatic phone call about the evacuation. One mother told KDFW-4 she didn’t feel comfortable leaving her child there because she wasn’t getting enough information from the district.
