A teenage rapper accused of making a bomb threat on Facebook that he warned would eclipse the horror of the Boston Marathon tragedy and make him “famous” will remain behind bars as a dangerous person.
Cameron D’Ambrosio, 18, of Methuen, who calls his rapping alter ego “Cammy Dee” in YouTube videos, can be held without bail for up to 90 days as he awaits trial, Lawrence District Court Judge Lynn Rooney ordered.
During the dangerousness hearing yesterday, Essex County prosecutor Kelleen Forlizzi called a Methuen police officer to testify about what police found after one of D’Ambrosio’s classmates reported the Facebook posting to school officials.
Methuen police seized D’Ambrosio’s Xbox 360 gaming console as well as a computer when they arrested him last week and charged him with making terroristic threats. He faces up to 20 years in prison if convicted.
