Pella Police Department investigated and charged a 16 year old female Pella High student with the delinquent act of threat of arson, by threatening to place an incendiary or explosive device in a place where it would endanger persons.  The charge is a class D felony.  The juvenile was transported to the Central Iowa Juvenile Detention Center in Eldora, IA.
