COLLIER COUNTY, Fla. -- Investigators have arrested a Naples 18-year-old for calling in a bomb threat to Naples High School Thursday.

Grayson Barry was arrested late Thursday night and charged with making a false bomb threat.

According to the Collier County Sheriff's Office, the threat was called into Naples High just before 9 a.m.  The caller to the school's main phone number claimed three explosive packages were on campus and could explode in one hour.

Students were evacuated from the campus and the bomb squad was called to the scene, where they located two suspicious packages.

Investigators traced the call to a cell phone connected to an IP address at a Naples swimming school.  Records connected that phone to Barry, who works as a lifeguard at the pool and was at that location when the call was made.

Grayson Barry was arrested and taken to the Collier County Jail, where he remains in custody on $10,000 bond.
