Salem police: Protesters support Methuen teen

SALEM — Police say a small group of protesters gathered outside the Federal Street courthouse yesterday morning in connection to the ongoing case of Cameron Dambrosio, a Methuen teen accused of making terrorist threats on Facebook.

Police were called to the courthouse at about 10:30 p.m. for a report of a group “refusing to move in front of court,” according to the incident log.

“The two protesters who refused to identify themselves were standing across the street from the courthouse prior to police arrival,” wrote police. “The protesters were not causing any disturbances and were behaving in a peaceful manner.”

Dambrosio was arrested earlier this month and charged with communicating a terrorist threat, a charge that carries a 20-year possible sentence. He was held on $1 million bail and was scheduled to have a hearing at the courthouse yesterday.

The protesters held signs reading “#massops” and “#freecameron,” according to the log. They disbanded after the hearing was over.
