TERRE HAUTE, Ind. (WTHI) - One juvenile was arrested in connection to a case involving threats to a Vigo County high school.
News 10 was able to confirm at a Vigo County School Corporation press conference that a 17-year-old was arrested for Intimidation for posing threats to Terre Haute South Vigo High School earlier in the week.
The Terre Haute Police Department (THPD) and the Vigo County Sheriff's Department (VCSD) confirmed the arrest was made and did not release the juvenile's name.
Both the THPD and the VCSD are currently in control of the investigation.
Vigo County Schools Superintendent Danny Tanoos said, "We've had a tremendous amount of support from the Sheriff and the Chief of Police to ensure the safety of the students and staff."
Sheriff Greg Ewing addressed the case stating, "We don't take [threats] as a prank. That is disruptive to the school day. It has taken law enforcement forces; and we are not going to tolerate it. It is not funny and it is a form of terrorism. Terrorizing the people that go to those schools and it will not be tolerated."
Superintendent Tanoos repeatedly referred to the alleged threats as "low-level"; however, failed to comment further on what exactly those threats were, stating the case is a "touchy subject".
