An 18 year-old male faces charges after an investigation into social media messaging that placed Regina schools into Secure the Building protocols yesterday: Tuesday, June 12, 2018.
At approximately 11:20 a.m. on Tuesday, June 12, 2018, police were dispatched to Regina schools in the north part of the city. The dispatch was prompted by social media messaging that contained a potential threat to three schools. As a precaution, the three schools were placed in Secure the Building mode: Archbishop M.C. O’Neill, Thom Collegiate, and St. Peter. Laval school was also placed under Secure the Building mode as an additional precaution. All schools in Regina train for, and understand, this protocol.
By definition: Secure the Building is a situation where it is believed a threat is currently outside the building resulting in the decision to secure the school whereby all outside doors will be locked to secure the building. Each exterior door is to be monitored by designated school staff until Secure the Building mode has been lifted. Entry and exit of the building will be at the front doors only and are to be monitored by police and school administration. Regular interior school activities continue in a controlled manner.
Investigation into this event led to an eighteen year-old male, who was arrested and charged.
Eighteen year-old Kalin Honus MOATE-WAGNER, of Regina, is charged with:
- Uttering Threats [CC 264.1(1)(A)]; and
- 3 X Mischief Under $5,000 [CC 430(4)].
MOATE-WAGNER made his first appearance in Provincial Court on these charges today, June 13, 2018, at 9:30 a.m.
