The Alexander County Sheriff's Department has charged a woman with threatening to bomb East Alexander Middle School in Hiddenite.

According to WSOC, deputies said 29-year-old Barbara Elizabeth Sherrill told others that law enforcement "better hope they find them (the bombs) before they go off."

School was dismissed Monday at 9 a.m. because of weather and a search of the school, which turned up no explosive devices.

Sherill is charged with one count of felony false report of mass violence on education property.

She was booked under a $20,000 bond.
