Hillcrest Principal Under Investigation For Failure To Report Bomb Threat

Posted: Updated:
SIMPSONVILLE, S.C. - Police in Simpsonville are investigating a bomb threat at Hillcrest High School and the principal for allegedly failing to report it.

The school was evacuated Thursday after a threat was found written on a bathroom wall.

Officials say Stephen Chamness knew about the threat for about a week and failed to notify law enforcement.

They tell us a teacher found the threat on the wall and notified Chamness.

"District procedures and expectations are very clear that bomb threats and any other threat to students and staff must be reported immediately to both law enforcement and the district administration," a statement released from the Greenville County School District stated.

Authorities also say they're investigating three other threats that happened at the school in the past month.
