Arrest Made in Windham Area School Threats

WINDHAM, Maine - School officials in a Maine district say police have made an arrest in relation to the threatening emails that have shut down schools in Windham and Raymond since Monday.

An assistant superintendent in the 3,300-student Regional School Unit 14 says school officials are planning an 11 a.m. Wednesday news conference to release more information. The district released all of its students on Monday as police investigated the emailed threat, and the schools have been closed since. They remained closed Wednesday.

Windham police did not immediately return a phone call seeking comment. Police have said the department enlisted the Maine Computer Crimes Task Force to try to determine the source of the emails. Police have said no details will be released until the investigation is concluded.
