A security guard at an Ohio school district was arrested on Wednesday after school and police officials said he threatened to blow up school buildings twice this week.
Students in the school district in North College Hill, a suburb about 10 miles north of Cincinnati, were evacuated and dismissed on Wednesday when officials briefly couldn't account for the guard's whereabouts. Students are safe and school buildings are secure, officials said.
For the rest of the week, students will not be allowed to bring any bags or purses to school.
Christopher Files, 20, is being held at a local jail on two counts of inducing panic, a second-degree felony, North College Hill Police Chief Ryan Schrand said.
Schrand arrested Files at the middle school after GPS tracking of Files' cell phone led police there. After a cell phone was found during a pat-down search, Files admitted to making the threats, Schrand said.
