THORNDIKE – A potential threat was quickly resolved this morning at Mount View High School in Thorndike.
It was placed into lock out mode while the Waldo County Sheriff’s Department investigated a student who they feared could be bringing a gun to school.
It began this morning when a driver spotted the student with a handgun while he waited for the bus in the town of Freedom.
Deputies stopped the bus and learned it was actually a pellet gun and the student left it at home before getting onto the bus.
The lock out mode was lifted as soon as the situation was resolved.
