Police offer reward, beef up patrols after Chamberlain High acid bomb attack

TAMPA – Police have offered a $500 reward and beefed up security at Chamberlain High after an acid bomb injured a student there on Monday.

No one has been arrested yet in the attack, police said. Detectives were following up on new leads Tuesday after a few students gave them new information, police said. Patrols also were increased on the campus.

On Monday, a student was walking through a hallway when the acid bomb was rolled toward her and blew up. Her skin was reddened and some clothes were burned.

A second device — both were plastic bottles filled with cleaning chemicals that caused an explosive reaction when shaken — was found in a nearby boys restroom. No other devices were found after police searched the school following a lockdown Monday.
