PRINCE GEORGE, B.C. — RCMP have arrested two teen-aged males in connection with an online threat made to Prince George schools.  Mounties arrested two males, aged 17 and 16 today.  Both are in custody.

The threat led to the lockdown of all public and private schools Thursday morning in Prince George.  Police and school officials didn’t put much merit into the threat, but put the lockdown in place as a precaution.

As of the noon hour, the lockdown at schools remain in place, but it is expected to be lifted soon.
