MAPLETON, Minn. (WCCO) — The Mapleton School Building was evacuated Monday afternoon due to a bomb threat, according to the School District.

At 2:15 p.m., students were evacuated to the Mapleton Catholic and Lutheran Churches.

When at the school, police interviewed a student that they believe acted alone in the bomb threat.

Authorities released the student to the custody of his/her parents after speaking to law enforcement.

Once an investigation is completed, the county attorney’s office may bring possible criminal charges.

Parents were told to pick up their child at those locations if they wish, but students will be dismissed at the usual times when the buses arrive in Mapleton.
