On April 09, 2018 at 07:00 hrs. The South Centre Township Police Dept. responded to the Central Columbia High School for a threat against the CHS. We were met at the school by Supt. Mathias and Principal Groshek who presented us with a social media posting of a threat showing a person with a firearm and captioning of ( F*** CHS I'm going out with a bang). We along with School Admin. determined who had sent and received the post to our students and they were detained and interviewed.
Further Investigation showed that the Social Media Post was generated in New Mexico several days ago more specifically April 05, 2018 and the Clovis Police Department identified the person who made the post and charged him with those crimes on April 06, 2018. The post has generated numerous calls to School Districts across the country that have the initials (CHS).
The initial portion of the investigation progressed efficiently with the help of the School District Administrative Staff, The Pa. State Police and the Scott Twp. Police Dept. You may see an increased police presence at the schools today as we finish the investigation. Again: The threat was not made against our school or any of our students. Remind your children if they see or hear something they are to tell someone. Encourage them not to post or re-post any social media that could lead to this type of incident. Encourage them to come to you if they see or receive a post like this and call 911 to report same.
