FAIRVIEW PARK, OH (WOIO) -

Fairview Park Police arrested a 32-year-old man in connection with both bomb threats at Gilles-Sweet Elementary School.

The first threat came via e-mail on Oct. 8.

The second threat came via text today, Oct. 21. Students were evacuated just after 10 a.m. and classes were canceled for the rest of the day.

The suspect is id'd as Brian Wasko. Fairview Park Police say he was having an argument with a person over a business matter and signed that man's name to the threats.

Wasko was arraigned in Rocky River Municipal Court Monday afternoon and charged with two counts of inducing panic.

Wasko apparently does not have a beef with the schools, but just wanted to get that other man in trouble.
