GLENDALE, Wis (WSAU-Wheeler News) Police have arrested a student for making a bomb threat yesterday at his high school in suburban Milwaukee. About 1,100 students at Glendale Nicolet were sent home after a hand-written threat was found in a boy's bathroom, and two suspicious packages were discovered on the first-and-second floors. A bomb squad checked out the packages and found they were harmless.
Glendale police captain Mark Ferguson said the key to the arrest was that his officers remained diligent. He said school bomb threats have become so commonplace that quote, "You try not to get complacent." The high school building was deemed safe around 12:30 -- but most students were long gone by then.
Officials said some Glendale students were supposed to take P-S-A-T tests yesterday, but didn't. Classes resume today. Administrators will determine whether a make-up day will be needed later in the school year.
