Ex-officer charged with making bomb threat

CANTON, Mass. (AP) — A former Millis police officer already charged with fabricating a story about a shootout with a mystery gunman in September is now also charged with calling in a fake bomb threat to the high school on the same day.

The Norfolk district attorney’s office announced Thursday that a grand jury has indicted 24-year-old Bryan Johnson on a charge of willful communication of a bomb threat to a school.

He also was indicted on several other charges including of misleading a criminal investigation, making a false police report, malicious destruction of property and unlawful discharge of a firearm. He pleaded not guilty in district court and is free on bail.

His Superior Court arraignment has not been scheduled.

A message left with his lawyer was not immediately returned.
