Brunswick police arrest high school student after online threat
St. George police on Tuesday praised the students who immediately reported the backpack that had smoke coming from it, as well as the Washington County School District for previously practicing evacuations, leading to "a quick and seamless evacuation" of Pine View High on Monday. Upon investigation, officers concluded the device "had the potential to cause significant injury or death" if it had detonated. Balvin said that student will be summoned to Worcester Juvenile Court this week on the charge of willfully communicating a bomb threat to a school.
Police delivered a search warrant at the home of the young male.
"Their immediate action played a large role in this incident ending with no injuries", the St. George Police Department said.
Student Jack Whalen said he spotted the suspicious backpack, which was open and smoking.
"I was just really scared", said one student.
The juvenile male has been arrested but not identified publicly.
TODAY'S FORECAST: Snow, high near 35
The lack of early snow accumulation had many doubting that a major winter storm was underway - if social media is any indication. As an area of low pressure over the Great Lakes dives southeastward, it'll bring snow across parts of Western New York.
The suspect also confessed to spray painting "ISIS IS COMI" on the school the same day, police said.
The investigation is ongoing, Superintendent Maria Suttmeier said.
Officers responded after Trevor Joseph Marshall allegedly made threats toward a student at Adelante High School. The campus was evacuated and police managed to disarm an explosive device inside the backpack without setting it off.
That flag incident happened February 15. Officials then contacted the school to advise them of the threat and inform them that they were investigating.

McMaster could leave the White House by the end of the month
But the task of easing McMaster out of his role as national security adviser presents a unique challenge for the White House. Ambassador John Bolton, who met with Trump at the White House late past year , is also in the running for the job.
What Is International Women's Day Anyway?
Women's representation in national parliaments stands, on average, at less than one quarter, and in boardrooms it is even lower. Subsequent International Women's Day protests demanded workplace safety regulations and remembered those who lost their lives.
