A teen was arrested after deputies say three Accomack County schools experienced bomb threats last week.

The Accomack County Sheriff's Office says on Friday, they received reports of bomb threats at Nandua Middle School, Nandua High School and Accawkmacke Elementary School. Deputies say a 17-year-old was arrested in connection to the incident. Authorities report that the teen was charged with one count of threat to bomb or burn a building.

The juvenile was taken to Norfolk Detention Center in Norfolk, VA  and held without bond.

Virginia State Police, Exmore Police Department, Onley Police Department, Onancock Police Department, and the Worcester County Sheriff's Office assisted the Accomack County Sheriff's Office with this investigation.
