Around 8am this morning, Leamington OPP were called to Cardinal Carter Secondary School regarding a note that was found, indicating that there was an explosive device inside the school.

The students were evacuated while police and school officials searched the school. Almost two hours later — and once they were satisfied that there was no danger — OPP officers allowed the students back into the school.

The Essex County OPP Crime Unit has completed its investigation and say that a 16-year-old Leamington youth was responsible for leaving the note, and that there was never any type of explosive device.

This youth has been charged with public mischief and uttering threats and has entered into the “Essex County Diversion Program”.
