Police arrest former student on charges he threatened schools

Police arrested a former Middle Township School District student Wednesday night who threatened the district on social media, officials said.

Raymond Bailey III, 20, of Cape May Court House was charged with false public alarms, cyber Harassment, and terroristic threats after he posted a threatening post on social media directed at the district, according to a release from the Middle Township Police.

Bailey is a former student of Middle Township High School and Cape May County Technical High School, the release stated.

The police department said they were told about the threat Wednesday evening but did not release any details about it.

Police said at about 9 p.m. they were searching for Bailey, but then announced about a half hour later he was in custody.

In a post online, police said they’d have an increased presence at all Middle Township Schools on Thursday and they would be “working closely with school districts to ensure the safety of faculty and students.”
