A 14-year-old Croft Middle School student was arrested yesterday for posting a bomb threat against the school on Instagram.
Investigation by Specialized Investigations detectives and Croft school personnel led to the identification of the student who was then removed from his classroom and taken into custody. He was charged in Juvenile court with threatening mass violence in a school.
The student admitted to posting the threat in order to get out of school early.
Threats to special events, schools and businesses are taken very seriously by the MNPD.
