— LONACONING — An eighth-grade student was charged with making a bomb threat after a threatening message was discovered Tuesday on a rest room wall at Westmar Middle School, according to the Allegany County Board of Education.

An immediate investigation by school officials and law enforcement determined the threat was “noncredible,” according to the school board.

The investigation of the 11 a.m. incident led to the charges against the student, who is also being disciplined in accordance with the school system’s policy.
