    Some parents may choose to pull their children from school Wednesday after a bomb threat forced students and teachers to leave a Gilroy campus the day before.

    The Gilroy Dispatch reports, 700 students at Brownell Middle School evacuated classrooms Tuesday after a thief used a stolen radio to transmit bomb threats over the school's radio frequency.

    Officers searched the campus for about an hour before giving the all-clear.

    Nevertheless, dozens of parents decided to keep their kids at home for the rest of the day.

    It's unclear if the prankster is a student.

    So far, there have been no arrests.
