FAIRVIEW PARK -- An adult man has been arraigned in connection with two bomb threats made to an elementary school. 

Brian Wasko, 32, of Westlake was arraigned in Rocky River Municipal Court on two counts of inducing panic.

Police have taken Wasko into custody.

Police say Wasko has also made threats towards Gilles-Sweet Elementary previously on Oct.  8.

Investigators say they were led to Wasko based on a similarity in wording with the two threats.   Police say the threats were signed using another man's name.  

Police say Wasko had a business dispute with the other man who was not involved and had been cleared previously after the first threat.

Earlier today, students were evacuated from Gilles-Sweet Elementary after the discovery of the latest bomb threat. 

The students were taken to New Hope Church and then sent home with parents.  

The school was closed for the remainder of the day. 

Three bomb sniffing dogs went through the building as a precaution.  Nothing was found.
