NORTH PORT (FOX 13) -

Police have arrested a Port Charlotte man for making threats against a school via Facebook.

Bomb-sniffing dogs were called to North Port High School on Monday after students alerted officers to a Facebook post that threatened the campus.

No bombs were found and investigators determined the post was a hoax.

Detectives say Kyle McMahan was responsible for the post. The 19-year-old surrendered to detectives this morning. He faces a felony charge of falsely reporting a bomb, as well as the misdemeanor disrupting a school function.
