Girl, 14, charged with filing a false report after bomb threat reported

SABATTUS — A 14-year-old girl was charged Wednesday with filing a false public report after a bomb threat was reported at Oak Hill Middle School on Monday, according to police.

The girl, whose name was not released because she is a juvenile, was charged and released to the custody of her parents, Sabattus police Chief Anthony Ward said Thursday.

Ward said the bomb threat was reported on Monday afternoon at 1:30 after the word “bomb” was discovered written on a bathroom mirror.

The police chief added Monday’s incident is not connected to a bomb threat that occurred at Oak Hill High School on Tuesday. Nobody has been charged in that case, he said.

Students were evacuated from the middle school while a state police bomb sniffing dog surveyed the scene, Ward said.

“They found nothing suspicious,” the police chief said.

The girl is believed to have acted alone and is a student at the school, Ward said. A court date has not been set for her.

When I went to school there was a paddle hanging on the wall in the principal's office. If you pulled any stunts it was applied to your seat end. When you went home and your parent's found out you got it again from dad. I saw a few 15 and 16 year old boys get it in school the principal didn't hesitate to use it. The girls also were disciplined by a lady teacher. I don't think parent's have done their children any favors by limiting the discipline a school official can dole out. jmo
