Man Arrested For Alleged Threats Against Auburn College
Security has been tightened at the CMCC campus after a man was arrested for allegedly threatening to shoot up the school.
In a post on the Central Maine Community College Facebook page, school officials say Darren Lilly of Bowdoinham was arrested Monday evening and charged with terrorizing. Lilly was formerly a student at CMCC and WGME-TV reports he was due to start school again in the fall. That admission has been revoked.
The Sagadahoc County Sheriff's Office was alerted to the alleged threats by friends who say they overheard Lilly talking about shooting up the Auburn campus. When he was arrested, Lilly was in possession of numerous firearms, including a sawed-off shotgun. Officials found a variety of firearms in Lilly's home and two from his car, one of which was hidden in a violin case.
Lilly is currently out on $1,000 bail, with the conditions that he not go into Auburn and not possess any firearms. School officials say the Auburn Police Department is providing additional security in the form of a greater police presence on the campus.
