Adams police Tuesday charged a Mars High School student with making terroristic threats after a bomb threat that cleared the high school Monday afternoon.

Police evacuated the school Monday after a note threatening a bomb blast was found in a girl's bathroom. Police, including members of the Allegheny County bomb squad, searched the school but found nothing. Another search before the start of school Tuesday also turned up nothing, according to a letter by superintendent William Pettigrew posted on the district's Web site.

Police would not identify the student, but said charges would be handled through Butler County Juvenile Court.
