Police say a fifth teenager is facing charges following a series of threats made toward Halifax-area schools.

A 16-year-old was charged on Monday in connection with a threats complaint at Citadel High School on May 2.

Four other teenagers are facing the same charges after alleged incidents at Rocky Lake Junior High School in Bedford, N.S., Fairview Junior High School and J.L. Ilsley High School in Halifax.
