Threats made against local schools not credible, according to police


SYDNEY — A Cape Breton Regional Police investigation has determined that threats made against eight Cape Breton schools are not credible.

Over the weekend, multiple reports were made to police about two different social media accounts that had made threats towards Sherwood Park Education Centre, Whitney Pier Memorial Junior High School, Sydney Academy, Riverview High School, Breton Education Centre, Glace Bay High School, Malcolm Munroe Memorial Junior High School and Oceanview Education Centre.

Through their investigation, the police general investigative section and its computer forensic unit were able to deem the threats were not credible, and that there is no threat to public safety at this point in time.

An investigation is ongoing.
