Police tell the Kennebec Journal that the eighth-grader from Wales is a student at the Oak Hill Middle School.

SABATTUS, Maine (AP) _ A 14-year-old girl is facing charges in connection with a phony bomb threat earlier this week at a Sabattus middle school.

Police tell the Kennebec Journal the eighth-grader from Wales is a student at the Oak Hill Middle School and was charged Wednesday with filing a false public report or alarm.

The girl allegedly wrote the word "bomb'' Monday afternoon on a mirror in a school bathroom, prompting an evacuation so Maine State Police could search the school with an explosive-sniffing dog.

A similar threat was made Tuesday at Oak Hill High School, but police say the incidents do not appear related and the second threat remains under investigation.

Police did not disclose a possible motive.
