A 48-year-old Milton woman was arrested this morning when she threatened to blow up Brittingham Elementary School, triggering a lockdown, police said.
Shortly before 9 a.m., Milton police were called to the school in the 400 block of Mulberry St., Capt. John Cornwell said.
Officer arrived to find the woman, identified as Lisa Thomas, had left the building.
She was arrested outside and charged with felony terroristic threatening and disorderly conduct.
