CLINTON, MS (Mississippi News Now) -

Clinton police have made two more arrests in a series of bomb threats to Clinton High School in May.

Quandarius Woodson, 19, of Brandon, turned himself into Clinton police Wednesday night after an arrest warrant was issued for him. Police say a juvenile was arrested May 17 in the case.

Woodson is accused of calling in at least one of the bomb threats to the high school. The juvenile is also facing a charge related to the bomb threats.

Clinton High School was evacuated three times in early May. The first threat came in on May 10 around 2 p.m. Law enforcement searched the building and classes resumed. Similar threats and evacuations followed May 13 and 14. The Federal Bureau of Investigation joined the investigation into the threats.

Police say they don't anticipate any more arrests.

Clinton police made the first arrest in the case May 16. Clinton Alternative School student Raejonn Higginbottom, 18, of Clinton is facing a felony charge for allegedly calling in at least one of three bomb threats.

Higginbottom has made the news for positive reasons in the past. WLBT has profiled the teen on more than one occasion for his boxing achievements. He even made it to the Junior Olympic trials in 2011. 

Higginbottom talked about his big plans for the future.

"School comes for first, school always comes first. So I'm going to go to college, you know, get my barber's license and my chef license -- my culinary arts license. Then I'm going professional," Higginbottom said.

Higginbottom and Woodson have both been released from jail on $10,000 bond. The teens each face a penalty of up to 10 years in jail and a $10,000 fine.

Higginbottom's court date is set for June 12.
