Lakeside teen arrested for bomb threat

Tuesday, February 6, 2001

Storm Lake Police arrested a 13-year old student, Steve Vorasith, at Storm Lake Middle School last Friday at approximately 1 p.m.

He was charged with Making a Bomb Threat, a class D felony after he allegedly made the statement during school that he knew how to make a bomb and he would use it to blow up the Storm Lake Middle School. A staff member alerted authorities to the threat.

There were no actual bomb devices or components, and there was considered to be no danger to the students, according to Police Captain Bob Swanson.

Vorasith was transported and held at the Youth Detention Facility in Cherokee. The case has been forwarded to the Juvenile Court Authority.
