Police seize cell phones, investigate incident involving Bishop Guertin students

NASHUA- Police in Nashua and Amherst are working with school officials at Bishop Guertin, investigating what's being called an “incident” involving several students.

Police will only say students are cooperating and that they have been in contact with the parents of the students involved.

A tip to our newsroom suggests the incident was sexual in nature and some students may have recorded it on their cell phones.

Police confirm they have seized several phones in their investigation.

It was difficult to speak with students as school officials stood between students and our camera. One student we were able to speak with hadn't heard anything, but says it would be surprising.

“I would be a little confused at first because it's not something you hear about often, it's not common here so I'd be a little skeptical about whether it's the truth or not,” said Mackenzie Sweeney, a senior at BG.

Principal Jason Strniste released a statement saying, “Bishop Guertin cannot comment on any disciplinary issues. We have procedures in place to deal with these types of occurrences.”

It's unclear where the alleged incident took place, but students say it did not happen on school property.

No charges have been filed, the investigation is ongoing.

Parents telling NH1 News they're seeing this as a good opportunity to talk to their teens about what's on their cell phones.
