Mercer borough police are investigating bomb threats that were discovered in the Mercer Area School District this week on three different days - Tuesday, Thursday and Friday.
A suspect has been identified, no one was hurt and no evidence of any bombs were found, Superintendent Dr. William D. Gathers said Friday afternoon.
Staff and students were evacuated each time so the school building, which houses all grades, could be searched by police.
Parents and guardians were notified through the district's emergency alert system.
