It's that time of year again when students are back to school and, unfortunately, for police and firefighters it's also a time of year for prank calls that can be a waste of time and emergency resources.

 Members of the Royal Newfoundland Constabulary responded to a bomb threat call at Prince of Wales Collegiate in St. John's shortly after 8:30 a.m. Wednesday.

Officers with the assistance of the RNC K-9 unit assisted with a search of the facility.

 Around 10:20 a.m., for the second time since schools opened this month, police responded to a bomb threat at Booth Memorial school on Freshwater Road in St. John's.

Once both facilities were cleared, the students returned and school resumed.

Both matters are now assigned to the RNC Criminal Investigation Division, Major Crimes Unit, with technical assistance from various specialty units of the RNC as required.
