Police: False threat of intruder at Wadsworth High School

The Wadsworth Police Department received a call at 9:39 a.m. today from a woman who had received a message on her phone advising there was an intruder in the Wadsworth High School, according to a police department press release.

The Wadsworth Police and Wadsworth Schools locked down the high school, the community center and all other Wadsworth schools as a precautionary measure.

Schools officials and police officers searched all of the buildings and determined there was no intruder and no threat to the safety of any students, faculty or staff, according to the press release.

As the Wadsworth Police began to investigate this matter it was determined the original call originated from an area near the Wellsville High School in Wellsville, Ohio., the release reads.

Wadsworth police also discovered that, around the time the call was received in Wadsworth, the Wellsville High School was doing a mock Intruder drill.

Upon further investigation, at this time it appears the call received by the Wadsworth Police was not intentional and there was never any threat at any of the Wadsworth Schools, according to the release.
