Phone threat leads to lockdown at Wolfeboro school


Police say a potentially dangerous situation was avoided in Wolfeboro Tuesday afternoon.

Chief Stuart Chase says they got word of what he calls a "significant and credible threat" to a local doctor's office. A man called the office Thursday, upset and saying he was coming to Wolfeboro to "deal with them".

Police say they know the man, and know that he has access to guns, and took no chances. Chief Chase says they coordinated a lockdown with the nearby Governor Wentworth Regional High School, the town library and the Huggins Hospital.

Shortly before 5:30pm Thursday, the man was found in a nearby town. Chief Chase says the case remains under investigation and no charges have been filed so far.
