A 28-year-old Harper Woods woman has been charged with “false report of threat of bomb/harmful device,” a felony, for a threat she allegedly made on Monday to blow up Harper Woods High School.

The Wayne County Prosecutor’s Office alleges that on Monday, just before 11 a.m., Ebony M. Holloway, who works as a lunch assistant at an elementary school within the Harper Woods School District, called in a phone threat to blow up the high school.

Holloway was arraigned Wednesday at 32-A District Court in Harper Woods. Her probable cause conference is scheduled for March 16 at 1:30 p.m. and her preliminary examination is scheduled for March 23 at 1:30 p.m.; both will take place at 32-A District Court.

Holloway was given a $25,000 personal bond, with conditions not to be on any Harper Woods school property. If convicted, she faces four years in prison.
