State police are at Vinal Technical High School in Middletown Tuesday as a precaution after arresting a student Monday night who is accused of making threats against the school.
State police said they responded to the Middletown Police Department at 7:16 p.m. Monday to investigate threats to the high school after a parent reported a child received three Snapchat messages that implied violence against the school.
Investigators developed a person of interest and responded to the student’s home, where the student admitted to sending the messages, according to state police.
The juvenile was arrested and charged with second-degree breach of peace and second-degree threatening.
The student is scheduled to appear in juvenile court in Middletown on Wednesday.
