Brewer High School student charged with terrorizing

BREWER - A Brewer High School student has been charged with terrorizing for causing a scare at his school.

Brewer Police say the 17-year-old had made some alarming remarks and other students reported them to officials.

 

Police talked to the student Friday and discovered he was in possession of a knife.

 

He was removed from school grounds and charged with terrorizing.

 

Police are now thanking the students who came forward for helping to keep the school safe.

 

There was also a police presence today at Oceanside High School in Rockland after a 20-year-old man allegedly made a threat on social media.

 

Thomas Sawyer, 20, was arrested over the weekend and also charged with terrorizing in what has become a rash of school threats facing Maine schools in the wake of the Florida school shooting.
