Boy, 12, 'made threats against B&Q and Home Bargains'
Police have charged a schoolboy following the alleged threats made earlier this month.
A 12-year-old boy has been charged after alleged threats were made against two businesses.
Police said earlier this month that they were investigating reports of threats made against B&Q and Home Bargains stores in Peterhead, Aberdeenshire.
Officers began carrying out searches in the local area.
But they also said there was no credible threat to the public.
On Monday, they confirmed that a schoolboy had been charged in connection with both incidents.
He will now be reported to the Youth Justice Management Unit.
Police said in a tweet: "Following reports of threats made against two businesses in the Peterhead area on Friday, June 1, a 12-year-old boy has now been charged in connection with both incidents and will be reported to the Youth Justice Management Unit."
