    Bridgeport Police have arrested a student in connection with recent bomb threats at Bassick High School in Bridgeport Friday.

    According to police, the student wrote bomb threats on the walls inside the school three different times.

    The school resource officer linked the student to the threats after viewing the school's security cameras.

    "These incidents are hugely disruptive. They took a thousand students out of the classroom and diverted significant police resources," said Police Chief Joseph L. Gaudett. Jr. "We don't view it as a prank. It is a serious crime and I trust the courts will treat it as such," he added.

    The male student was charged with three counts of first-degree threatening, breach of peace, risk of injury to minors, and criminal mischief.
