Police arrest former student accused of threatening Selah schools
SELAH, Wash. — Police on Wednesday arrested a former Selah High School student suspected of posting a social media threat that prompted an hour-long lockdown at Selah School District campuses.
A school resource officer was made aware about 7:50 a.m. of a threat posted on social media by the former Selah student. The threat was not directed at a specific school, according to a Selah police news release.
Officers found the boy — whose age and identity have not been released — at his home and arrested him without incident, the release said.
He was booked into Yakima County’s Juvenile Detention Center and may face criminal charges for harassment and disrupting school activities.
