PRESS RELEASE

On September 8, 2022, State Police of Cobleskill arrested a 14-year-old for Making a Terroristic Threat, a class ā€œDā€ felony.

On September 7, 2022, at about 9:54 a.m.  Troopers responded to the Cobleskill-Richmondville High School for the reports of multiple social media postings by a student threatening to bomb the school.  Students and faculty were asked to shelter in place while the property was swept by K9 units.  The investigation determined the threats were unfounded, and there was no safety risk to anyone at the school. 

The juvenile will appear in Schoharie County Family Court at a later date.
