Detectives from the Montgomery County Police Department – 4th District Investigative Section have charged an 11-year-old male with charges related to a telephone threat that was made against the Parkland Middle School community this afternoon.

On Friday, June 1 at approximately 12:34 p.m., 4th District officers responded to Parkland Middle School located at 4610 West Frankfort Drive in Rockville for the report of a telephone threat that had been received by the school.  A school faculty member reported to police that the suspect had called the school and made a general threat against Parkland Middle School students.
