CLAIRTON, Pa. (AP) - A 14-year-old boy from the suburb of Clairton has been charged on dozens of charges relating to bomb threats which forced three Pittsburgh Public Schools facilities to evacuate last month.

Police aren’t identifying the boy because he’s being charged in juvenile court with 33 counts of terroristic threats, 15 counts of threatening to use weapons of mass destruction, and eight counts each of misdemeanor terroristic threats and making false alarms.

Police say the boy was allowed to seek in-patient mental health treatment instead of being arrested and is now undergoing outpatient treatment as he awaits trial.

The threats targeted West Liberty Elementary, South Brook Middle and the Pioneer Education Center.

The threats were all hoaxes.
