SMITH CENTER, Kan. (AP) - Authorities have arrested a person suspected of making a bomb threat to a north-central Kansas school.

The Salina Journal (https://bit.ly/1ZIloHA ) reports that the person was taken into custody Monday. No information about the suspect or circumstances surrounding the arrest was immediately available.

Smith Center Superintendent Ron Meitler says a student found a note at Smith Center Junior Senior High School claiming there was a bomb, but he didn’t know specifically where the note was found.

Students were evacuated from the school in the Smith Center district after the 10:30 a.m. threat. Smith County clerk Sharon Wolters says elementary children also were removed to the courthouse lawn and most were released to their parents by noon.
