Anaya Smith Biography
Who is Anaya Smith ?
A Florida woman accused of threatening to blow up her son’s high school unless cafeteria workers gave her more food for lunch has been arrested months after she allegedly made the threat.
However, the woman’s family said the police had the wrong person.
The threat was left on Feb. 3 in a voicemail to Cocoa High School, according to police. School staff members heard the message the next morning and contacted Cocoa police.
The school was evacuated, but no weapons or explosive devices were found.
While the person didn’t leave her name on voicemail, police said the school’s caller ID recorded the phone number.
Anaya Smith Arrested and Charged
On Wednesday, Anaya Smith, 41, was arrested and charged with making a false bomb threat and disrupting a school.
“She has been falsely accused based on paperwork that was messed up at Cocoa High School,” said Smith’s sister, Andrea Johnson.
Johnson said they misidentified her sister, but police say Smith’s phone number was the one on the school’s caller ID and an officer recognized Smith’s voice on voicemail.
“She doesn’t have that number. That’s not her number,” Johnson said.
A resource officer reportedly confirmed that her son had an argument on February 3 with a cafeteria worker because he wanted more food.
Smith’s family claims that the student named in the report is not Smith’s son.
“Not her son, not her phone, not her nothing. Everything will clear up and we will take care of her. But there are definitely some people who need to be held accountable because that’s not how it’s supposed to be,” Johnson said.
