A teen is facing several charges after threats were made against two schools in west-central Saskatchewan.
Mounties got a call about 8;30 a.m. Tuesday about the threats, and exterior doors to Maidstone high and Ratushniak elementary schools were locked, the schools were monitored, and classes continued.
A male youth was arrested at a residence in Maidstone without incident.
Police say the youth is charged with uttering threats, mischief, possession of a dangerous weapon and common nuisance.
RCMP say they cannot give the youth’s age due to provisions of the Youth Criminal Justice Act.
The youth is to appear in Lloydminster provincial court on Friday.
