Teen girl charged over Stockland bomb threat

A TEENAGE girl will appear in court later this month, charged with calling in a bomb hoax to Stockland Rockhampton.

Detective Senior Sergeant Luke Peachey said the 15-year-old Rockhampton girl was issued with a notice to appear in court on September 19.

The Officer in Charge of Rockhampton CIB said police investigations and public assistance led to her being charged for a hoax call made to retailer JB Hi Fi on July 27.

It comes after two Gracemere men were granted bail after appearing in Rockhampton Magistrates Court on similar charges while they wait for their matters to be dealt with in the District Court.

There have been a number of bomb threats called in to Stockland Rockhampton since July and police are continuing to investigate several separate incidents.
