MONTPELIER — There wasn’t just one hoax phoned in to the Montpelier High School today, but two.
At approximately 10:45 a.m., the school was put into lockdown after someone called warning that a “potentially dangerous individual” was heading to the school with a gun, according to police.
The hallways were cleared, police setup a perimeter, swept through the school and for more than an hour no one was allowed in or out of the building.
At approximately 11:30 a.m., it appeared things were going to return to normal and a press release was issued stating that the “threat was not credible.”
And then a second call was received. This one was a bomb threat and the school then remained in lockdown until approximately 12:30 p.m.
Police determined that this too was a hoax.
Police and school officials declined to answer any questions about the incident or whether there is a suspect or suspects.
