OSCEOLA COUNTY, Fla. – An Osceola County teen has been arrested after deputies say she made school bomb threats on social media.

Dinoshka Colon, 16, was charged on Tuesday with false report of a bomb, a second-degree felony.

Deputies said they were notified that Colon, who attends Gateway High School, had made bomb threats on social media.

Colon told deputies that she posted statements about a bomb threat to the school on Twitter because she was angry and did not want to go to school, according to a news release.

Deputies said they searched the school, but found nothing suspicious. No school activities were affected by the search.

Colon was booked into the Juvenile Detention Center.
