Arrest made in Granite Falls High School cyber threats
GRANITE FALLS, WA — Granite Falls police arrested a 17 year old male after a month long investigation into threats made towards students and staff at Granite Falls High School. The suspect is a student at the high school and was taken into custody Thursday night after police conducted a search warrant at the students home. Police say the student confessed to making a series of violent threats against specific students.
The threats were made on a popular social networking site called ASK.FM. Its a site based in Latvia which allows users to post a question or statement anonymously. Granite Falls police have been working with the FBI to track down the threats that began appearing on the site back in December.
The 17 year old suspect was booked into the Denny Juvenile Justice Center for cyberstalking and felony harassment.
