SABATTUS, Maine — A 14-year-old girl was charged Wednesday with filing a false public report after a bomb threat was reported at Oak Hill Middle School on Monday, according to police.

The girl, whose name was not released because she is a juvenile, was charged and released to the custody of her parents, Sabattus police Chief Anthony Ward said Thursday.

Ward said the bomb threat was reported on Monday afternoon at 1:30 after the word “bomb” was discovered written on a bathroom mirror.

The police chief added Monday’s incident is not connected to a bomb threat that occurred at Oak Hill High School on Tuesday. Nobody has been charged in that case, he said.

Students were evacuated from the middle school while a state police bomb sniffing dog surveyed the scene, Ward said.

“They found nothing suspicious,” the police chief said.

The girl is believed to have acted alone and is a student at the school, Ward said. A court date has not been set for her.
