TUCSON - Days after a Sabino High School student was arrested for making threats at school, two more students have been taken into custody on similar charges.
The first happened today at Tanque Verde High School. Pima County Sheriff's deputies tell News 4 Tucson that an investigation revealed the threat was made by a student from another school. That student was booked in the juvenile detention center.
The other threat happened yesterday at Marana high school, says Deputy Tom Peine. Marana Unified School District representatives say a former student posted a threat to blow up the school on Facebook. That juvenile was booked on charges of Threats and Intimidation.
"This incident did not disrupt the regular school day or result in the high school's need to implement any emergency procedures," MUSD spokesperson Tamara Crawley stated in a news release. "Please know that we take all concerns of this nature extremely seriously. In addition, Marana High School wants to take this opportunity to commend students for bringing this information to the school's attention."
A 14-year-old Tucson boy was picked up Monday night and taken to Pima County Juvenile court after making several threats of violence at the school in October. He was cited for threats and intimidation and released to his parents.
Peine says the Pima County Sheriff's Department does not take threats like these lightly.
