Augusta Police Issue Update On Cony High School Bomb Threat
The Augusta Police have issued an update on the bomb threat against Cony High School that led to the closure of all Augusta schools today (March 4).
According to Augusta Deputy Police Chief Jared Mills, Maine State Police, Portland and Bangor Police K-9’s have completed searches all schools in Augusta.
"After approximately 5 hours of close inspection, there were no harmful devices or substances located at any of the places that were searched," Mills said in a release. "At this time, we have been working with the Maine Information and Analysis Center, the Maine Computer Crimes Task Force and the FBI to determine if the email threat made against our school system was connected to similar threats that were made to several other schools in other New England states this morning around the same time frame."
