Hampton Police say a School Resource Officer was contacted around 6:30 p.m. Monday evening by a Hampton City Schools Administrator who notified them of the bomb threat.

Further investigation revealed that 41-year-old Tracy Tomon Smith posted the threat to bomb the school at 4:30 p.m.

At 10:21 p.m. Smith was arrested and charged with one count of threatening to bomb.

Her position within the schools is unknown at this time.
