    Juvenile Charged in Wareham School Threat

    Charges have been filed against a juvenile following a July gun threat towards schools in Wareham, Massachusetts.

    Wareham police say that, following an investigation, a criminal charge has been filed with both the Wareham District Court and a complaint has been filed with the Juvenile Court Clerk.

    The name of the juvenile charged in connection with the school threat was not released.

    In July, Wareham police said an email was sent anonymously from someone claiming to be inside a school with a gun. Wareham High School, Wareham Middle School and Minot Forest Elementary School were evacuated and searched by police out of an abundance of caution, according to police.

    Each facility had summer school and other educational activities going on.

    The Southeastern Massachusetts Law Enforcement Council SWAT team responded, with mutual support coming from the Cape Cod Law Enforcement Council SWAT team and the Massachusetts State Police STOP team. State police also sent its air wing, K9 units and troopers from the Bourne barracks.

    The court hearings and arraignment are scheduled for Jan. 24.
