Arrest made in Buchholz bomb threats

Press release from Alachua County Sheriff’s Office

On September 13, 2021, deputies arrested Buchholz High School student Preston Powers, 17, of Gainesville, charging him with possession of cocaine, making false bomb threats, and using a two-way communication device to commit a felony. Evidence obtained as a result of a search warrant at the suspect’s home led to the development of probable cause in the case. Further investigation is ongoing, which may result in additional charges.

  • Hates masks’ mandates…should have peacefully protested.

    Cocaine? Bridged that gap from baby aspirin to stronger drugs quickly.

    Must have been attempting to impress Poe’ or Ward’s daughters with how to get school dismissed early.

    Parents should have exercised their rights to bust his @rse earlier and probably more often.

    Further proof that even a village can’t raise a child if it lacks the support of parents and the basic morality of right and wrong.

    • It takes a village to raise a child only works in
      Communist countries…its the parents job to educate
      And feed their child.

    • Press release doesn’t say he was protesting mask
      Mandates.. we don’t know his motives of the bomb
      Threats..but what you say is plausible.
