PSO arrested a 13-year-old Cypress Creek High School student this morning after the student made a threat on social media toward the school. The person who made the alleged threat was identified, located and is not at the school. The student was arrested for Written Threats to Kill. The threat was found to be a hoax, and to be clear, there is no threat to the school. An additional law enforcement presence will be at the school today out of an abundance of caution.
PSO takes all threats seriously and investigates them thoroughly. If you see a threat on social media, report it immediately and do not share it. For PSO, you can submit a tip to the Pasco Sheriff’s Crime Tips Line at 1-800-706-2488, or submit a tip online at pascosheriff.com/tips
