    (NECN: Scot Yount, Lawrence, Mass.) – Eighteen-year-old Cameron D'Ambrosia is being held without bail after posting a tirade on Facebook threatening to quote go insane.  He allegedly referred to the Boston Bombing followed by ‘wait till you see the (expletive) I do.’

    The Methuen High School teen was arrested Wednesday after some classmates reported the posting to school officials and held on a million dollars bail.

    "To make a threat and use what occurred in Boston to enhance your threat is extremely alarming to us and raises the level to whether or not that is going to occur immediately," said Joe Solomon, Chief of Methuen Police.

    "I knew Cameron as a quiet kid you know," said Steven Cuevas, a neighbor.

    D'Ambrosia lives in this home with his family according to court documents, but nobody answered the door.  The documents say police removed a laptop and XBox during a search.

    Neighbors said he was a normal kid.

    "I think he just said it out of anger, so as far as him doing it, I don't think he would have done it," said Cuevas.

    Still, everyone is sensitive after the tragedy on Marathon Monday.

    "To have some respect for the victims in Boston like I said he has been picked on he had a lot of anger built up on him so I think he just lashed out on the internet saying it, I don't think he was actually gonna go through with it," said Cuevas.

    According to neighbors, D'Ambrosia considers himself a rapper and goes by the name CammyDee on Youtube.

    At Methuen High School, parents were notified by way of a reverse 911 call.

    "It is kind of crazy to think that a person would actually want to do that, yeah to make threats and actually want to do it," said Nick Dechirico, a Methuen High School Student.

    "Yeah I don't think they think it is a big deal but then stuff like this can actually happen so people take it seriously and they don't I don't think," said Methuen High School student Jenna O'Malley.

     D'Ambrosia is being held without bail until a dangerousness hearing next week.
