Middletown schools threatened for second day in a row

Students at Maple Hill Elementary and Monhagen Middle Schools were on lockout and lockdown after district officials say a threat was called in Wednesday morning.



It was the second day in a row a threat had been called in.



The district has been plagued with nearly a dozen so-called "swatting" incidents since September, and frustrated parents say they are concerned for their kids.



Police have arrested a 9-year-old Middletown girl in connection with one of the bogus calls.



The FBI is investigating the other calls.
