Arrest made in bomb threat on Middle School

Police and fire officials said they worked with the Board of Education to make sure the school was safe and secure. Police were notified about the threat by two different tips Wednesday evening.

The latest bomb threat was called into 911 just before 10:45 a.m. and put Central High School and Endeavor on lockdown.

But as described in the latest update from the Pennington County Sheriff's Office, "No further information or evidence was discovered that would support the threat as being credible". A search of the school was carried out and the threat was resolved by members of the Jackson Police Department, Teton County Sheriff's Office, and bomb detection K-9 and handler from the Lander Police Department in cooperation with the Teton County School District. "At this time, all of the buildings are to remain empty until law enforcement teams give us the all clear".
