The Bangor Police Department says there is no threat to students attending Bangor High School. Following a scare Tuesday.
Police say school officials caught wind of some rumblings on Monday that something bad was going to happen at the high school the next day.
They investigated and, according to Deputy Chief Peter Arno, a suspect confessed to fabricating a threat.
The police are working with the district attorney’s office to see if they’ll be any charges filed.
There was another school scare on Tuesday, this time in Warren.
Authorities say that the Warren Community School was put under lock down after reports came in that there was a person in the nearby woods with a gun.
The call came in at around 10am Tuesday that a teenage male had reportedly argued with his parents, and took of into the woods with a gun.
The teen returned on his own following a 2 hour search by the sheriff’s office, the Maine State Police, and the Maine Warden Service.
Officials say that no charges have been filed at this point.
And a Maranacook community high school student has been suspended after a handgun was allegedly found in his possession at the school.
Superintendent Rich Abramson says the gun was taken away without incident when the student was searched at the Readfield school last Wednesday.
Abramson says a letter was sent home to parents notifying them of the incident: other students were informed on Friday.
The student is under suspension pending a review by the school district board.
There has been no word yet on whether criminal charges will be filed. Maine State Police are investigating.
