Verbal threat towards Narraguagus High School

Washington County Sheriff's Office

On Tuesday October 29th, 2013 the Washington County Sheriff's Office responded to a report of a verbal threat towards Narraguagus High School located in Harrington at approximately 7pm. Lt. Tim Tabbutt and Deputy Dennis Worcester investigated the report. As a result of the investigation a juvenile male was charged with Terrorizing. The juvenile has been given a December arraignment date and was also given a Consent of Conditional Release that prevents him from returning to Narraguagus High School and any other MSAD#37 properties.

The Washington County Sheriff's Office is working closely with the administration of MSAD#37 to ensure the security of Narrguagus High School and all other facilities. The Washington County Sheriff's Office will have a presence at Narraguagus High School for the near future.

The Washington County Sheriff's Office and the MSAD#37 administration would like to express to the public that everything is being done to make sure the faculty and the student body are safe.


“Our first concern is for the well being of our students”. As a result of some rumors and accusations floating around the internet last night that appeared on facebook and other modes of social media. MSAD#37 in conjunction with local law enforcement took the appropriate cautionary measures to make sure that all of our students are safe. Law enforcement has been involved and this case is being investigated. It is inappropriate at this time for me to discuss any specifics of this ongoing investigation other than to ensure to everyone that we are doing all that we can to make sure that our schools are safe.
