A 13-year-old New York Mills student is the suspect in a phoned-in bomb scare that shut down Perham High School for two hours May 13.


Students were evacuated Tuesday morning, after a bomb threat was received at the high school offices.

Perham Police Chief Brian Nelson was interviewing the suspect by about 9:30 a.m. At about 10 a.m., after school staff and law enforcement personnel had conducted a physical sweep of the building, school was back in session.
