LOWELL, N.C. -- Cramerton Police announced Tuesday they've identified a suspect in two bomb threats at Lowell Elementary School in the past week.

A Lowell Elementary School student has been identified as the suspect behind the threats, and police say charges will be filed. The student has not been named.

School officials say students were evacuated from Lowell Elementary School following a bomb threat  on Friday morning and again on Monday.

In both instances, the threat came in the form of a message written on the wall of a bathroom, prompting administrators to call in the Cramerton Police Department.

The school's bomb sweep team and law enforcement cleared the school on both occasions before students were allowed to reenter. No suspicious items were found in either case.

Cramerton and Lowell police are working together to determine if recent threats at Holbrook Middle School are related to Lowell Elementary.

Lowell Elementary School is located in the 1500 block of Power Drive in Lowell.
