School Bomb Threat Deemed Terrorism

09/13/12 6:06AM

Police in Montpelier say they believe a false report of bombs and a gunman on the way to the high school is linked to similar threats last spring, and is considered an act of domestic terrorism.

Yesterday, Montpelier High School was locked down after a phone caller said a gunman was en route. The threat included multiple bombs.

Police say they determined the threat was similar to those made last April 5th.

In April, the Montpelier Police Department issued a number of subpoenas in the United States and Europe.

Police say the suspect or suspects have been identified in Europe. And they say the threats are being made through computer networks.
