NORWALK, Conn. -- Three 15-year-olds were arrested in connection with the bomb threat at Wolfpit Elementary School on Wednesday that resulted in an evacuation of the building, Norwalk police said.

The names of the juveniles were not released because of their ages.

One was charged with second-degree criminal trespass, third-degree criminal mischief, breach of peace and conspiracy. A second teen was charged with second-degree criminal trespass and conspiracy. The third teen was charged with second-degree criminal trespass. All three were arrested Wednesday night and released to the custody of their parents.

The threat was found Wednesday morning written on a desk, prompting the evacuation of the school. Students and staff were moved to the nearby STAR building while police searched the school. Everyone was allowed back in shortly after nothing was found.

School Resource Officers Fred Kellogg and Thomas Kalamaras conducted the investigation into the incident. Information from a community member eventually led them to the three suspects, police said.

"School Resource Officers Kellogg and Kalamaras did an excellent job bringing this investigation to a successful conclusion so quickly," police said in a statement.
