Student charged with felony in Powhatan school threat

Laurens County High School

The Powhatan County Sheriff's Office has arrested and charged a Powhatan High School student in relation to a credible threat made on Wednesday against the school on social media.

"Late this afternoon, we were made aware of a social media post that was being shared by high school students that suggested that 'students not come to school tomorrow, ' while also referencing the Las Vegas shooting", the letter read.

While there is no reason to believe that there is a current threat to any students at any Peru Community Schools, parents and students should expect to see police presence in and around the schools on Monday when students return from fall break.

But parents woke up Thursday morning to a new email from the school stating the Powhatan County Sheriff's Department identified the source of the threat.

Students reported the threat to school officials.

He said this is a lesson to all students to be careful what you post.

A search warrant was simultaneously executed on the juvenile's residence and an electronic device was seized that is believed to be the device used to make the post, Reynolds said. Their investigation determined that while the threat was credible, the 'juvenile lacked the immediate means to carry out his threat'. "There is also no indication at this time that the juvenile conspired with others", said deputies.

It's been a tense week at several Virginia schools.

Dinwiddie High School and nearby Dinwiddle Middle School were both put on lock down Wednesday morning following a gun scare.

A gunman opened fire on a large crowd of concertgoers at a music festival October 1 on the Las Vegas Strip, leaving 58 people dead and 489 injured.
