One person has been taken into custody in connection with Monday morning’s bomb threat that prompted the evacuation of Bigfork High School.

The Flathead County Sheriff’s Office reports a juvenile male – whose name is not being released at this time – has been located and taken into custody.

“Due to the quick response from Bigfork High School and the Sheriff’s Office, details were obtained which led to the quick identification of persons involved,” a news release states.

The threat was called in to the school at approximately 7:30 a.m. on Monday, leading to the evacuation of the school.

Students were allowed back in at approximately 9 a.m. following an interior and exterior search of the area.
