BRIDGEPORT - Police say a Bassick High School student is facing a wide array of charges for allegedly making three bomb threats last week.

The school was evacuated after investigators say the student wrote threats on walls inside the building.

Police say they used the school district's new video surveillance system to track down the suspect.

City Councilwoman Lydia Martinez, who was inside the school during the bomb threats, says police have no choice but to treat the student as a criminal and call for the stiffest penalties possible.
