BRISTOL, Conn. (WTNH) — There will be additional police at a Bristol middle school today after a student was arrested for making a bomb threat.

Police were called to Greene-Hills School around 2 o’clock Wednesday afternoon after the word ‘bomb’ was found in a girl’s bathroom. Students were evacuated and then released early because of it. No bomb was found.

A couple of hours later police identified a student as their suspect.

“A student at the school was developed as a suspect, and several hours later was charged as a juvenile with the crimes of Breach of Peace in the 2nd Degree and Threatening in the 1st Degree,” police said in a news release.

Police said there was no actual danger and they didn’t even need to call the bomb squad.
