Pratt police have made an arrest linked to a threat that prompted officials to close schools on Tuesday.
“The Pratt Police Department informed us this morning that late-night developments led to an arrest in the case” of the threat made on Monday, Pratt Superintendent Suzan Patton said in a statement posted on the district’s website Wednesday.
The Kansas Highway Patrol, using K9 units, inspected a school Tuesday. More inspections were conducted by teaching and custodial staff, Patton had said in a note to parents.
The threats made in the e-mail sent Monday afternoon proved to be unfounded.
“Late-night developments” Tuesday led to the arrest, Patton’s statement said Wednesday.
Additional details have not been released. The case remains under investigation.
