YARMOUTH – Yarmouth Police have identified a suspect allegedly involved in Wednesday’s bomb threat at Dennis-Yarmouth Regional High School.

A 16-year-old male juvenile student allegedly admitted to the crime and is being charged; as well as facing immediate disciplinary action by school officials.

Because the student is a juvenile, police are not releasing his name. He’ll be arraigned in the Barnstable District Juvenile Court in the near future.

Dennis-Yarmouth Regional High School School Resource Officer Patrick McCaffrey of the Dennis Police Department and School Resource Officer Nicholas R. Pasquarosa, Jr. of the Yarmouth Police Department—working closely with Dennis-Yarmouth Regional High School Administrators—identified the suspect.


The Yarmouth Police Department praised School Resource Officers McCaffrey and Pasquarosa as well as the Dennis-Yarmouth Regional High School Administrative Team for their handling of the initial incident and successfully solving the crime in less than 24 hours.   

On Wednesday at 10:50AM, a student at Dennis-Yarmouth Regional High School located at 210 Station Avenue found a note indicating that a threat.

As a cautionary procedure, school officials decided to conduct an early dismissal and school was ended at 1:30PM and all after school activities were postponed.

Massachusetts Law is very clear and powerful regarding making threats like this one.  Anyone convicted of this crime can face up to 20 years in state prison and a fine of up to $50,000.

This release was prepared and distributed by the Command Staff of the Yarmouth Police Department.
