The 13-year-old boy was arrested for investigation of first-degree terroristic threatening.

A girl and a boy, both 14, had been arrested last week. All three suspects were released pending investigation.

Police said they have no evidence linking this case with last week's bomb threat.

In that case, police told the Department of Education on Wednesday that an anonymous caller to 911 claimed a bomb had been planted at a public school on Oahu and was set to go off in three days.

Officials searched campuses Wednesday and early Thursday but found no bomb.

Late Thursday, police clarified the report, saying it was against one public high school and was not considered credible.
