State school put in lockdown after threats made

MILES State High School was placed in lockdown yesterday afternoon after threats were made by a member of the public.

A spokesperson for the Queensland Police Service said the incident occurred around 2.20pm when a 33-year-old woman began making verbal threats outside the school.

Police were called and the woman was arrested 10 minutes later.

She has been charged with tresspass and creating a public nuisance and was released on bail to appear in the Chinchilla Magistrates Court on September 21.

MSHS principal Josette Moffatt said the safety and welfare of students and staff were her highest priority.

"At no time were any students or staff at risk," she said.

"Support is available for any students or staff requiring it."
