WILLIAMSBURG COUNTY, SC (WCSC) - Threats to a Williamsburg county school have landed two juveniles and a 19-year-old man in big trouble with the law.

Kingstree police say five people were involved in making two separate bomb threats to Kingstree Senior High School last week.

Students and staff were evacuated while state investigators searched the campus. Nothing was found and no one was hurt.

Jimmy Epps, 19, of Kingstree was charged with accessory after the fact. Police say he worked with two minors who were charged with conveying bomb threats. Those teens are in the custody of the Department of Juvenile Justice.

More arrests are expected.
