In a concerning incident, Torrington Middle School faced a disruptive situation as police reported that a student had hacked into a classmate’s email account to send a false bomb threat. The incident came to light on Monday when Torrington police were alerted to an email circulating among students at the school, claiming that a bomb would be brought to the school on Thursday.

Following a thorough investigation, law enforcement officials identified the student responsible for the hoax. The individual had gained unauthorized access to a peer’s email account to send the threatening message. Authorities have clarified that there was no credible threat to the safety of the school community; rather, the email was sent as a malicious attempt to implicate another student.

In a statement released on their official Facebook page, Torrington police assured the public that the situation had been thoroughly investigated, and classes at Torrington Middle School would proceed as scheduled on Thursday. The department emphasized that the disruptive email was a deliberate ploy to cause trouble for another student rather than a genuine threat.

The implicated student has faced consequences for their actions, as they have been suspended from school and subsequently arrested. The authorities are taking the incident seriously, underscoring the importance of maintaining a safe and secure school environment.

Parents and guardians are encouraged to engage in open conversations with their children about online behavior and the potential consequences of engaging in activities that compromise the safety and well-being of the school community. The incident serves as a reminder of the importance of maintaining cybersecurity measures and fostering a responsible online culture among students.
