Monroe Co. student charged with making bomb threat

A Monroe County high school senior is facing charges after police say he threatened to blow up his school.

Authorities say 17-year-old Anthony Caputo made the threat on Facebook on October 8 but Milian High School officials didn't learn about it until Sunday.

Caputo was reportedly upset over having to work in groups in class. He was charged with using a computer to make a threat and making a false bomb threat.

Prosecutors say the teen confessed to police. He pleaded guilty and is set to be sentenced January 10.
