School cook arrested after threats reported

CUMBERLAND - Wendy Ferris, the head cook at King Philip Middle School in Norfolk, Mass., and a resident of Burnt Swamp Road, is free on $5,000 cash bail after pleading innocent this week to charges that she threatened to shoot co-workers and made statements about plans to buy ammunition and an AK-47.

She was arrested by Cumberland Police on Jan. 31 and remained in the custody of Norfolk Police over the weekend until her Wrentham District Court hearing on Monday.

She reportedly has no criminal record but is licensed to carry a firearm and owns a 9 mm handgun.

The source of the conflict was reported to be a batch of overcooked cookies.
