FAYETTEVILLE, N.C. — Cumberland County sheriff's detectives on Wednesday arrested Larry Donnell Robinson Jr., 16, of Fayetteville, in connection with four recent bomb threats at two county schools.

Detectives believe Robinson made a bomb threat Jan. 7 and two bomb threats Feb. 2, calling 911 and claiming there was a bomb in Cape Fear High School.

Another threat was made in the same manner Feb. 3. But this time, detectives said, the bomb was alleged to be in Mac Williams Middle School.

Robinson, a junior at Cape Fear High School, was being held Wednesday night in the Cumberland County Detention Facility under a $20,000 secured bond. He was charged with four counts of making a false report concerning a destructive device in a public building, and four counts of misuse and interference with 911 systems.

Robinson has a first appearance in District Court scheduled for 9 a.m. Thursday.
