An 18-year-old male has been arrested in connection with a bomb threat made at Esko Public Schools on Tuesday.

According to the Carlton County Sheriff's Office, he was arrested for Felony Terroristic Threats and is currently in custody at the county jail, pending formal charges.

A message to parents Tuesday afternoon said students had been evacuated and brought to a nearby church as authorities searched the school. The building was deemed safe that evening.

Authorities did not say whether the suspect is a student.
