Police detain Dublin teen in connection with Montana bomb threats

A 14-year-old Dublin boy is suspected of calling in bomb threats to schools in Helena, Montana over a period of three separate days, police said Friday.

Helena police identified the boy as a suspect and contacted Dublin police, who located him and took him into custody, according to Lt. Herb Walters.

The investigation was conducted jointly with the FBI and the Alameda County District Attorney's Office, Walters said.

No other information is being released because the case involves a juvenile suspect, Walters said.
