TOWSON - For the second time in two weeks, Towson High School has received a threatening message from an unknown source.

On Wednesday evening, BCPS administrators informed the Baltimore County Police about a threat emailed to Towson High School staff members.

BCoPD investigators do not believe the threat to be credible, but additional officers have been stationed at Towson High School out of "an abundance of caution." The school remains scheduled to start and end on time today.

In their letter to residents, BCoPD asked the community to remain vigilant and report any suspicious activity.

"As the safety of our students remains a top priority, the Baltimore County Police Department reminds County residents to stay vigilant in reporting any suspicious activity to authorities."

Baltimore County Police say they've seen an increase in threats made against schools this year, most of them from outside the country.
