Lincoln City Police detectives arrested a juvenile Friday over social media posts concerning a threat to Taft High 7-12 after the school reported the posts to law enforcement.
Lincoln City Police School Resource Officer Logan Smith and detectives opened an investigation into the social media posts and identified the juvenile responsible for their creation. The minor was taken into custody 1:30 a.m. Friday, charged with first-degree disorderly conduct and taken to Lincoln County Juvenile Detention facility.
According to LCPD, further investigation determined the juvenile involved was not a student at Taft 7-12 and there is no longer a concern for safety.
“This incident was not related to another social media threat located in another part of the state earlier,” a LCPD official said Friday.
