An 11-Year-Old attending Ranum Middle School in Adams County, Colo. has been arrested under the suspicion that she made bomb threats at her school for two days in a row, The Denver Post reports.

According to the Adams County Sheriff’s Office, the sixth grader allegedly first called the school on Oct. 12 threatening the lives of “everyone in the school.” The school was evacuated and after an exhaustive search, no explosive devices were found, Fox31 reports.

Then the very next day on Oct. 13, Ranum school staff got another phone call threat -- this time the caller asked for $100 and said there was a bomb in a school locker, according to The Coloradoan. Once again, the school was evacuated and Adams County Bomb Squad found no explosives after a lengthy search.

The girl is being held on $2,500 bond at a juvenile detention facility in Brighton and faces charges of extortion and false reporting of explosives, according to 9News. The young girl’s name was not released because she is a juvenile.
