Student in Custody in Connection with School Bomb Threat

A 13-year-old student was taken into custody Thursday for allegedly calling in a bomb threat to Atkins Elementary School in Bridgeport Township. Bridgeport Township Police said the student was in the Saginaw County Juvenile Center pending formal charges.

A Michigan State Police K-9 team was brought in to search the building, but nothing was found and no one was injured.

The school went into secure mode just before 9:00 a.m. and received the “all clear” about 10:00 a.m.
