Student Facing Charges After Making Threat

A student at the Blue Mountain Middle School is facing criminal charges for a hand written message left on a classroom desk earlier this month.

According to Orwigsburg Police, the message read: “I am about to make Columbine look like a joke J”. 

The student was interviewed by police and admitted to the act; however, conveyed that it was meant as a dark joke.  As a result, the student will be charged with the following: terroristic threats, disorderly conduct, harassment, and criminal mischief.  

Police stated, "In light of the threat of terrorism as it relates to our nation’s schools, and in further protecting our students and faculty from these threats on a local level, “jokes” such as this will not be tolerated and will therefore face the fullest extent of the law."
