At no point were any students in danger, police said.

The case remains under investigation, and authorities say they are confident that an arrest will be made soon.

"I can assure you this alleged prank was not funny, and the person(s) responsible will be charged with a serious felony crime.  We will not tolerate any pranks or threats that disturb the learning process at any of our schools," said Slidell Police Chief Randy Smith in a news release.
