RCMP are investigating after a bomb threat yesterday morning forced the evacuation of a school in Western New Brunswick.


Students, faculty and staff at Southern Victoria High School were taken to the River Valley Civic Centre and the Perth-Andover Wesleyan church around 11 a.m. after a threatening e-mail was received.

RCMP Sergeant J.P. Dufresne says charges are expected to be laid against one minor. Police did a sweep of the school and deemed it safe. Students were bussed home for the remainder of the day yesterday, but were back in class today.

This was reportedly the second bomb scare at the school in the past week.
