Threatening email closes schools in Camden

CAMDEN - Several schools in the Camden area were closed today because of a threatening email.

An incident the police department now believes was just a hoax.


Police and school officials decided to cancel classes at several local schools after a school administrator received the threat early this morning. Police investigated and didn't find anything suspicious at any of the schools.


They eventually learned the same threatening email was sent to other schools in Maine and Florida. Officials are now working to determine the source of the threat.
