State Police Presence at Vinal Tech After Snapchat Threat

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.
