Lac La Biche RCMP say a threat made against J.A. Williams High School on social media earlier today has no teeth.
At approximately 1:30 p.m. Lac La Biche RCMP were notified of the potential threat. Police immediately responded to investigate these concerns and quickly determined that a youth made the threat and it was not credible. Northern Lights School Division were advised of the threat and outcome.
The RCMP has identified and interviewed the youth and determined there was no plan or intent to carry out any threat of violence towards the school. For these reasons, no criminal charges will be laid in this case. The identity of the youth involved will not be released.
“We take this types of threats seriously,” said Staff Sergeant Henry Van Dorland, Detachment Commander of Lac La Biche RCMP. “Our officers were able to determine very quickly that the threat was not credible so school was not affected.”
No further information will be released regarding this incident.
