Speculator man’s case adjourned

GLOVERSVILLE – The Speculator man who allegedly threatened to shoot up Gloversville High School “Columbine style” had his case adjourned in City Court on Monday.

Trevor Blanchard, 24, of 104 Stanyon Park Drive, Speculator – who was charged this month with making terrorist threats and disseminating indecent materials to minors, both felonies – had his case adjourned until Oct. 7.

Blanchard last week was briefly represented by attorney Heidi Gifford before being assigned Mike Sutton, of Albany, to represent him.

Since Sutton was unable to attend court Monday, the case was adjourned until October.

Police previously said Blanchard allegedly sent a female Gloversville High?School student a message, requesting photos of her. When she refused, police said, Blanchard allegedly sent lewd photos and subsequently made threats toward the girl and her friends, whose names he got through social media.

Police said Blanchard subsequently sent messages to the girl stating: “I’ll pull a Columbine” and “Goodbye, GHS.”

Authorities said Blanchard and the girl did not know each other.
