Adamson’s next scheduled court date is Oct. 7 to consult legal counsel.

There have been seven threats made against Kamloops schools this month — all coming within a two-week period.

One other person has been arrested for making threats against a school. On Sept. 19, RCMP arrested a male youth after receiving a tip from Interpol about a threat made against the Kamloops Christian School. The tip was based on a social media post on Snapchat that showed a youth holding two pistols with a threatening caption, police said.

A third threat was made by a teenaged girl against Sa-Hali secondary, but she was not charged, with police issuing her a warning.

The remaining threats came in the form of spray painted words on various school buildings referencing “bombs.”
