Student charged for bomb threat

BY BETH BROGAN Times Record Staff

BATH — A 13-year-old Phippsburg male was charged Monday with terrorizing in connection with a bomb threat at Bath Middle School.

Bath police responded just before 10 a.m. to the school at 6 Old Brunswick Road after a threat was discovered on a partition in a boys bathroom, Bath Police Lt. Stan Cielinski said Tuesday.

Due to “good work by the school and the officer,” police quickly discovered the threat was unfounded and did not evacuate the building, Cielinski said.

The boy — a seventh-grader — was summonsed and released to his parents. He is scheduled to appear in West Bath juvenile court on July 2.

Monday’s incident marks the third bomb threat at Bath Middle School since September.

In separate incidents in February, a 12-year-old sixth-grade girl and a 14-year-old eighth grade girl were charged with terrorizing after allegedly writing threats on a girls bathroom wall at the school.

No one has yet been charged in any of three bomb threats this year at Morse High School, the most recent on April 26.
