Kashawn Supreme Deas, 21, of Allentown, Penn., was arrested over the weekend on suspicion of calling the K-12 school numerous times on both Aug. 20 and Sept. 19 and threatening to blow it up.Deas apparently connected with the other suspects, Austin and Alex Troyer through online gaming. According to the police arrest warrant (via the Press-Citizen), the Troyer brothers allegedly convinced Deas to call in the bomb threats presumably -- and I'm just guessing on this last point -- to get out of school.
According to criminal complaints, Deas is accused of calling Regina, 2150 Rochester Ave., at 8:56 a.m. and 8:59 a.m. on Aug. 20, demanding money and saying, “I am going to blow up the school, get the kids out now.” His third call on that day went unanswered because the school had been evacuated, according to police.
On Sept. 19, Deas is accused of calling Regina at 12:09 p.m., 12:12 p.m. and 12:33 p.m. He called two more times, but those – again – went unanswered because the school had been evacuated. During his September calls, Deas is accused of demanding money and saying, “I am going to run into the school with a bomb strapped to myself, get out now,” according to the complaints.
I checked out the local arrest blotter, but it's unclear what he was actually charged with. Newspaper reports indicate that he faces five counts of making threats, which is a class D felony.
