NEWS/ POLICE — Another threat to school brought police action Wednesday, this time in Westsyde.
Shortly after 2:30 p.m., RCMP were told a phone threat had been made to Westsyde secondary referring to weapons and bombs. Officers cordoned off the area around the school and then did a search as the school remained in emergency lockdown.
Both inner and outer perimeters were cleared by police. Students were then dismissed from the school, and the building was deemed safe.
RCMP continue their investigation. They’re asking anyone with information to contact Kamloops RCMP at 250-828-3000 or call Crime Stoppers.
Last week, a threat called in to Summit elementary led to a similar lockdown and search. That call was deemed a hoax.
