The Comox Valley RCMP has made an arrest in connection to the threat that closed Lake Trail Middle School.

Police say charges of uttering threats are being considered against a youth.

“Reports of this nature are always treated as serious and authentic until we conduct a thorough investigation to confirm the credibility of the report,” said RCMP spokesperson, Const. Monika Terragni. 

“We are still investigating and continue to work with the school district; however, there is no longer any evidence to suggest an ongoing threat to the school.”
