SPARTANBURG CO., S.C. (WSPA) – An Inman man was arrested after allegedly making bomb threats towards Boiling Spring High School.

The Spartanburg County Sheriff’s Office says the calls were made to the 911 dispatch center early Sunday morning.

Deputies say 19-year-old Mackavious Antwan Swindler threatened to blow up the high school.

The sheriff’s office says deputies walked through the high school to make sure there was no real danger.

Boiling Springs High School Principal Chuck Gordon says parents should feel comfortable about sending their kids back to school on Tuesday.

“It is always my intention to ensure that the students, faculty and, staff at Boiling Springs High School are safe,” Gordon said. “Toward that end, I have instructed our two resource officers to do another walk-through of all BSHS facilities. For me and the members of our community, this action will serve to ensure that we have done all things possible for the safety of our school community.”

Swindler is charged with making a bomb threat.

He’s in the Spartanburg County Detention Center under a $30,000 bond.
