"This is not fun and games. If you do make these types of threats and stuff and you do get caught, if you are a student, you will be expelled and you will face charges from the authorities," Brian Vissers, West Allis School District communications specialist said.

School was evacuated at West Allis Central and classes were cancelled for the day about a month ago -- on February 4th.

This time around, school officials said the warmer, nicer weather allowed students to be outside while the search took place.

Anyone with information that could help police in this case is asked to give them a call.
