An 18-year-old man has been charged with terrorizing after allegedly calling in a bomb threat to Madawaska Middle/High School on Friday afternoon.

Madawaska Fire Chief Jim Soucy said that a call came in at around 2 p.m. that a bomb was on the school campus. Police say no explosive device was found after a thorough search of the school and the parking lot.
