Teen’s Terrifying Past, Connection to Prostitution Ring, May Explain String of Bomb Threats
BROOKSVILLE – Hernando County Sheriff Al Nienhuis and School Superintendent Dr. Lori Romano announced the arrest of a 17-year-old girl yesterday, after nearly a week of bomb threats that disrupted activities at Central High School and surrounding schools.
Although students and staff can breathe a sigh of relief, knowing a suspect is behind bars, the question is now being asked why the lone-student would commit the string criminal acts to begin with.
Sheriff Nienhuis says 17-year-old Mizella Robinson could be charged as an adult after he consults with the State Attorney. RNRF Facebook Members can follow this link to watch the conference in it’s entirety.
I asked Nienhuis if he thought Robinson might be suffering from mental health issues, but he said it was too soon to comment on why she committed the crimes, and only stated that she admitted to acting alone.
Chloe Cruz took to social media and ask the question, “Why is Mizella Robinson, age 17 listed on Florida Children and Families list of missing children?” Cruz further stated that Robinson is still listed as a missing juvenile and that the state’s website claims to update their list of missing children every week. Sources tell RNRF that Robinson reportedly moved here in December from Ocala and was living with a foster family.
Cruz speculates that Robinson may have been a victim of sexual abuse, because a man by the name of Bruce “Mizell” Robinson was arrested in 2013 for allegedly recruiting young girls to work as prostitutes. However, the connection between Mizella Robinson and Bruce Mizell Robinson has not been confirmed. Cruz says, “If there is (a connection) it would explain her troubled nature.”
Nienhuis says Robinson is charged with 6-counts of False Report of a Bomb, 6-counts Unlawful Use of a Two-Way Communications Device, 5-counts of Misuse of E-911 and 6-counts of Disruption of a School Function.
Nienhuis says a separate incident occurred on Wednesday that shut down a busy section of Cortez Blvd for at least an hour, after a suspicious package was discovered at a bus stop near Mariner Blvd. The Citrus County Bomb Squad responded and determined that the package did not contain an explosive device.
Thanks to video surveillance, Nienhuis says 50-year-old Bradley Allen Tirrell, a local vagrant, was arrested and charged with breach of peace.
