KENNEWICK, WA - Kennewick Police say they now have a suspect in custody after someone made threats to Saint Joseph's School Wednesday morning.

Kennewick Police say investigators Wednesday afternoon were able to trace the phone calls made to the school to 20-year-old Cesar Olveda's cell phone in Kennewick.

Officers arrested him at his home for nine counts of making threats to bomb or injure property at a school, a class B felony.

Deputies booked him into the Benton County Jail. 

Kennewick Police say school employees arrived at work on Wednesday and found several messages on a school phone, threatening an attack on the school. 

Officers say the school went into lockdown, and administrators moved all the children to the Sanctuary on the Church campus.
