ESKO, Minn. (WCCO) – An 18-year-old Esko student is in the Carlton County Jail after being arrested for allegedly writing a bomb threat that led to the evacuation of Esko School on Tuesday.

According to the Carlton County Sheriff’s Office, Eddie Michael Edwards is suspected of leaving a written threat that was found around noon on Tuesday in the K-12 school.

The building was evacuated, and everyone moved to a nearby church while bomb detection dogs were dispatched. The FBI was also involved in the situation.
