A New Brunswick male student from the New Brunswick Middle School was charged for raising a false alarm last Friday afternoon. He said that he was carrying a gun in his backpack. The first threat was made by the boy at the end of the school. A teacher was informed about the threat that the boy was uttering.
The school officials and the New Brunswick Police detectives sprung into action after hearing this news and questioned the boy. The boy said that he was just joking about having a gun in his backpack. The police also carried out a thorough inspection of the boy’s home to determine if he was possessed any gun at home or not.
Such false public alarms are also taken by the New Brunswick police and the school officials as a serious offense. Hence, they cannot be lenient towards the person who raises a false alarm.
The student was charged with raising a false alarm. The New Brunswick Police Department has asked the community members to bring to the notice if they hear or see anything suspicious. They say that they would want to investigate further to make sure that it is not a serious threat.
The police in New Brunswick have increased the security and safety measures in schools following the recent Florida school shooting.
