Two teenagers will be in Kentville court March 13 to face charges of uttering threats, which led to a lockdown Feb. 25 at two Kings County schools.
The 15- and 17-year-old boys were arrested Tuesday a few hours after a student at Central Kings Rural High School received a threat via text message RCMP spokesman Sgt. Alain LeBlanc said.
Both CK and neighbouring Cambridge Elementary School were locked down, and then placed in a “hold and secure” pattern, while police confirmed the suspects were not on school property.
LeBlanc said the boys were arrested in another location. He could not say what the nature of the threat was.
