File # 2020-19222

One youth has been arrested after the Comox Valley RCMP and School District 71 made the decision to close Lake Trail Middle School on November 26, 2020 in response to a threat directed at the school.

Reports of this nature are always treated as serious and authentic until we conduct a thorough investigation to confirm the credibility of the report said Cst. Monika Terragni, Media Relations Officer, Comox Valley RCMP. We are still investigating and continue to work with the school district; however, there is no longer any evidence to suggest an ongoing threat to the school she added.

Charges for uttering threats are being considered against the youth.

Anyone with additional information can call the Comox Valley RCMP at (250) 338-1321 and refer to file 2020-19222. If you wish to make an anonymous report, contact Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-TIPS or online at comoxvalleycrimestoppers.bc.ca.
