Police found a Louisiana student preparing a second bomb threat on his phone when they arrived at school to arrest him on the first one.

Calvin Richardson, 17, was sitting at his desk working on the second threat when officers arrived. Deputies say the teen had posted a bomb threat on social media April 13, 2016 threatening to blow up Ponchatoula High School.

Authorities were able to trace the first threat to Richardson’s mobile phone.

Ironically, if the teen used the threats to avoid going to school, he got his wish after his arrest. He was taken to jail instead.

“Talk to your children about the seriousness of online threats and the consequences of facing multiple felonies at the young age of 17,” Sheriff Daniel Edwards said in a press release.

Richardson was charged with two counts of terrorizing and two counts of false planning of a planned bomb on school property.
