CHATTANOOGA, Tenn. (AP) - Investigators are searching for suspects after someone wrote threats on two Hamilton County schools’ walls, just days after two other schools received similar threats.

The Chattanooga Times Free Press (https://bit.ly/1OU2Lsc ) reports that Hamilton County Sheriff’s Office spokesman Matt Lea says the perpetrators could face criminal charges because of the seriousness of alarm caused by the threats.

On Wednesday, a bomb threat was found written on a bathroom wall at East Ridge Middle School. That same day, officials say a threat was written on the bathroom wall of East Hamilton Middle High School.

Hamilton County Schools Assistant Superintendent Lee McDade says all threats were taken seriously, regardless of whether they were copycats of threats found last week on Ooltewah High School bathroom walls. Two boys have been expelled from the school and charged.
