Police to provide update on series of threats against Thunder Bay schools

Lakehead Public Schools

THUNDER BAY, Ont. — Police in Thunder Bay, Ont., say they’ll be providing an update on their probe into a series of threats against local high schools.

City school board Lakehead Public Schools has said police received at least 13 anonymous threats between mid-February and mid-April, most of which targeted Hammarskjold High School.

Lakehead was forced to close the schools in 11 of the 13 cases as police investigated the threats.

Police have said the alleged threats came in through the Crime Stoppers tip system and involve warnings about suspicious packages and school shootings.

City police announced they had made two arrests in the case on Wednesday, but did not provide any details.

They will hold a news conference later this afternoon alongside the city’s mayor and the school board’s director of education.
