Bomb threat at one school, hunting rifle at another

There were two incidents at local schools this week: a Ravena-Coeymans-Selkirk High School student was arrested Nov. 27 for allegedly making a bomb threat at the school, and a Cairo-Durham parent mistakenly brought a hunting rifle to campus. In southern Albany County, the 15-year-old boy allegedly told a RCS staff member, "I'm going to blow the school up." That led to an investigation from the Albany County Sheriff, who found the student at his home, and charged him with making a terroristic threat, a felony. At Cairo-Durham Middle/High School November 28 in Greene County, a student told administrators that they saw a firearm in a car in the parking lot, and school administrators, with the school resource officer, found a hunting rifle in a vehicle. The parent returned to the vehicle, and "law enforcement is now handling the issue with the owner of the firearm," Cairo-Durham Superintendent Anthony Taibi wrote on the district's website.
