West Fork School District evacuated all of its schools Thursday morning following a bomb threat at the middle school, police say. A student was arrested following a police investigation.
West Fork police received a call around 10:30 a.m. of a written bomb threat discovered on a desk in the middle school. Officers responded, and the school district evacuated the middle school and the other district schools as a precaution, according to the West Fork Police Department.
Authorities brought bomb-sniffing dogs from the University of Arkansas to search the school, but nothing suspicious was found, police said.
Following an investigation, police arrested a juvenile student they said left the bomb threat. Police said he also tried to blame the bomb threat on another student.
Students were allowed to re-enter the schools after the all-clear was given around noon, police said.
