CANTON, Conn — A juvenile is facing a false reporting charge after a threatening note found in Canton Intermediate School caused an evacuation Tuesday morning.

Students were moved to a nearby community center after a note was found in the bathroom saying there was a bomb in the building.

No one was injured. 

Connecticut State Police performed a K-9 sweep of the school and did not find anything of concern.

After the investigation, police arrested a juvenile, who has been charged with falsely reporting an incident.

All students were dismissed for the rest of the day due to the disruption, police said. The school day will resume as normal on Tuesday.

This is a developing story.
