A 20-year-old woman is facing charges of mischief and misleading after police say they responded to a complainant of a bomb threat at Eastern College on Dresden Row in downtown Halifax yesterday morning.

Police say the bomb threat came in to staff at 8:30 a.m. regarding an explosive in the building.

The building was evacuated of staff and students with police saying a search of the building turned up nothing unusual.

A short time later, police say a 20-year-old female was arrested for making the call and taken into the custody.

She will appear in court at a later date.
