Teen accused of school threat held on $2M bail

PORT ORCHARD (AP) — An 18-year-old former student accused of making threats to “shoot up” Kingston, Washington, High School has been ordered held on $2 million bail.

Matthew Allen Smiley appeared in court Monday. He was arrested last Friday for investigation of felony harassment.

KOMO-TV reports that Kitsap County Deputy Prosecutor Benjamin Turner said Monday that Smiley is accused of telling one young student he planned to take action on Sept. 11.

Other students called police after they say they overheard the teen make more general threats.

The Kitsap Sun reports that Smiley’s mother asked a Kitsap County District Court judge to let her son return home, saying he had the support of a loving family.

Investigators say Smiley had access to firearms, including a .22-caliber pistol under the driver’s seat of his vehicle, and another pistol in a safe in the family home.
