Female juvenile arrested in connection to threat to Hubbard schools
A female juvenile has been arrested in connection with a threat made against Hubbard Schools on Tuesday.
According to a press release from Hubbard Police Chief, Bob Thompson, preliminary investigations pointed to a male juvenile as the suspect. However, further investigation revealed new information leading to the arrest of a female juvenile.
Police believed there to be a credible threat when they first received information of a text message "involving weapons," which caused the school to go into lockdown on Tuesday.
Despite the message's mention of weapons in the text Chief Thompson told 21 News no weapons were found during the investigation.
Later Tuesday night, a video surfaced on social media causing further concern. The video was investigated by police, but was not determined to be a credible threat, so school resumed as normal the next day, but with an increased police presence.
Chief Thompson thanked both Cortland Police and Brookfield Police for their assistance in the investigation.
