BREAKING: FTPD Charge Bellevue Man for HHS Bomb Threat



Fort Thomas Police have charged 20-year-old Tyler Swope of Bellevue with first-degree terroristic threatening and reporting a false incident, in connection to a bomb threat that was called in to Highlands High School on the morning of January 15.


The bomb threat caused students to be evacuated for almost two hours that January morning.

According to a Cincinnati.com report, Swope has been subpoenaed to appear in court, but has not been placed under arrest.

In the same report, Swope's attorney, Phil Taliaferro, confirmed Swope has worked as a volunteer at Kenton County Animal Shelter, and was a volunteer firefighter for the city of Southgate.

FTPD expressed their thanks to Southgate Fire Chief John Beatsch, as well as the FTFD.

This story will be updated.

  1. You explain to me how the hell he doesn't get arrested. People get arrested for not paying fines and this is how the pd deals with a bomb threat placing hundreds of students lives at risk! REALLY

  3. He should be arrested and charged for this stupid and very irresponsible action. Pour decision of not arresting.

  4. I think it's funny how the high school evacuated the school and only put them in the middle school gym for the bomb threat. The middle school is actually connected to the high school, and only has about a twenty foot walkway between the buildings. if the bomb was actually real, those poor kids would have been to close to comfort in my opinion. Glad to know that the school really cares for its student's safety!

  5. Hey Anonymous the word would be "Poor" as in a bad decision. "Pour" is to pour yourself a beer.

  6. Here is a news interview with Mr. Swope . Back in 2011. He claimed to be a witness to a fire in Ft. Thomas. https://www.google.com/url?sa=t&source=web&cd=11&ved=0CEEQtwIwCg&url=http%3A%2F%2Fm.youtube.com%2Fwatch%3Fv%3DMPxRYcezatY&ei=OyUsU-aqLsOkyQHs94D4BQ&usg=AFQjCNGhyOMde9Uxd7PYMcGsyssUUR2mHQ

  9. I also know him to be a hard working young man. I hope that he gets the counseling that he needs for this obvious cry for help. Our family will keep him in our prayers.
