Early Friday morning as students arrived to school, deputies that were working an assignment at Calvert High School learned that a social media threat was made sometime the night prior. The deputies worked with the school administration to investigate the threat. The student was quickly located and isolated. A search of the backpack in his possession revealed a realistic looking BB gun. This juvenile student was immediately removed from the school and is pending several charges.
Sheriff Mike Evans will continue to staff deputies at the schools until further notice. Students and parents are encouraged to continue to report anything suspicious.
Sheriff Mike Evans is aware of the rumors and threats at the various Calvert County Schools. We will continue to investigate each and every one. Additionally, we will give as much information via Facebook, Twitter, and Nixle as fast as we can. In that vein the Sheriff has conducted an interview with Fox 5 that was aired at 5 pm and repeated throughout the night. Please continue to report any and all suspicious activities.
