NAUGATUCK, Conn. (WTNH) – Police in Naugatuck have arrested a 17 year old who they say called a bomb threat into a school earlier this winter that caused a lockdown. The call came in around 11 AM on January 29th. The caller made some sort of threat, and Naugatuck High School was put into what the school calls a “Code Yellow” which means the students were forced to stay where they were for several hours while police searched the building. Nothing was found.
On Monday, March 16th, police arrested a 17 year old Naugatuck resident who they say made the call. Police say during their investigation they discovered that the teen had been communicating with another teenager in Ohio who police say was responsible for a number of bomb threats in several parts of the US and Canada. The Ohio teen was also arrested this week.
The 17 year old is being charged as a juvenile. No further information is available.
