A Ganado Secondary School student was taken into custody Thursday after he threatened to blow up his school and injure the principal.
The student was charged with a misdemeanor for making terroristic threats. The student did not disrupt school, so he’s not being charged with a felony, said Ganado Police Chief David Merritt. Merritt said he’s not concerned about the student’s threat to blow up the school.
“Does he have the means? Probably not,” Merritt said. “I don’t believe there’s any more threat to any of the student body.”
Merritt said the police have dealt with the student in the past. He said the investigation into the incident is complete and the student should have been released from juvenile detention Friday morning.
The case is now in the hands of the Jackson County juvenile court, he said.
