Corey Richardson, 19, to be in court next week

A Quincy man, accused of phoning in a bomb threat to Mark Twain Junior and Senior High last October, will be in court next week.

19-year old Corey Richardson will appear for a trial setting Wednesday in Ralls County Circuit Court on a Felony count of making a false bomb threat. He’s accused of phoning in the threat to Center Police, saying there was a bomb in Mark Twain High School. That caused both the Junior and Senior High to evacuate students, and close for the day back on October 2nd. The threat brought numerous law enforcement agencies to the campus, as well as Bomb sniffing dogs from the Pike County, Missouri Sheriff’s Office and the Missouri State Capital Police in Jefferson City. Richardson, who was arrested three days after the incident, was previously detained by Hannibal authorities in 2016, after trying to run away to Ohio with a 13-year old girl.

He’s in the Pike County Jail on $50,000 cash-only bond.
