Springboro police have arrested an 18-year-old student on felony charges accusing him of making a bomb threat.

Andrew Stadler, 18, faces single charges of inducing panic and making false alarms, Warren County Prosecutor David Fornshell said in a prepared statement.

A hearing for Stadler in Warren County court has not been scheduled.

Stadler, who runs cross country for the school, is accused of making a bomb threat that caused an evacuation of Springboro High School just before 1 p.m. April 27. District-wide events were canceled that evening as well.

The threat was written on a bathroom wall.

The high school remained closed April 28 while law enforcement performed an extensive search of the building.

“I’m very grateful for the staff and students of the Springboro Community School District, who were instrumental in providing information that helped identify the suspect, and the Springboro Police Department for all of their efforts in investigating this case,” Fornshell said in the statement.
