SEABROOK – At approximately 4:00 p.m. on March 18, Seabrook Police Department officers found and arrested a person of interest for allegedly making false reports of explosives at Walmart earlier in the day, resulting in the closure of that store and others nearby .

The suspect was on the property of the Best Western, located at 20 Spur Road, and was taken into custody without incident. She is identified as Meghan Leavitt, age 38, from Alfred, ME, according to a department press release.

Leavitt was charged with false reports of explosives (misdemeanor); false reports to law enforcement (misdemeanor); false public alarm (crime); criminal threat (crime); possession of controlled drugs (misdemeanor).

Leavitt’s arrest stems from an incident that began at about 11 a.m., when Seabrook police responded to Walmart, located at 700 Lafayette Road, for a report of a possible explosive device in the store. When officers responded, a second call was made directly to the police saying there was a man in Walmart with a firearm.
