Police: Teen called in threats to Skowhegan store

SKOWHEGAN (AP) -- Skowhegan police allege a "tech savvy" 14-year-old boy called in two bomb threats to a local Wal-Mart in less than a week.

Chief Ted Blais said Thursday the teen attempted to mask his cellphone by the use of an online service, but police were able to trace the calls.

The chief tells the Morning Sentinel the case has been turned over to the Somerset County district attorney's office for review, which could lead to charges of terrorizing and causing a false public alarm.

The boy's name has not been released because of his age.

The caller on Jan. 28 and Feb. 3 said there was a bomb in the men's room. The store was evacuated both times but no bombs were found and no one was hurt.
