STAFF REPORTS

Hays County sheriff’s deputies arrested a man today they say called in a phony bomb threat to Chapa Middle School that prompted an evacuation of the Kyle campus.

Rafael Zamora, 19, is charged with making a false report, a state jail felony punishable by up to two years in jail and a $10,000 fine.

Zamora is thought to have called in a threat about 10:30 a.m. prompting an evacuation of the school, sheriff’s spokesman Lt. Leroy Opiela said in a written statement. A search by the district’s school resource officers school employees found “nothing of a suspicious nature … and students were allowed to return to their classrooms.”

Zamora was arrested at about 11:45 a.m. at Dacy Lane and Amberwood near the school. The statement does not say how investigators identified the suspect.

Zamora is being held on a $10,000 bond in the Hays County jail.
