LEAVITTSBURG, Ohio (WKBN) – A juvenile has been taken into custody after a threat canceled classes in the LaBrae Local School District on Friday.

“We’re extremely happy that the result is what it is, which is it’s not a credible threat and the person who’s responsible for that threat is in custody,” said Superintendent A.J. Calderone.

Calderone says he discovered an email Friday morning that was sent overnight. There weren’t specifics about what would take place, but it mentioned the date and a specific time.

Calderone says he notified police and school was canceled.

“We have to take those types of situations seriously. You can’t play the ‘what if’ game of what if it’s not true. You have to assume that there’s some level of truth there and act accordingly and you naturally want to err on the side of caution,” Calderone said.

Police say with help from Warren Police Detective Michael Altiere, who’s knowledgeable in electronic communications, they were able to make an arrest. Police say the 13-year-old boy is a student in the district.

Calderone gives credit to the Warren Township Police Department for first being able to identify and then arresting a suspect in this case. He says it should send a message that this type of behavior won’t be tolerated.

“When you take that risk and you act irresponsibly, you’re naturally saying you’re willing to take the consequences. So I don’t care where you are, what community it is across this nation, when you make those threats, yeah, you should be held responsible,” Calderone said.
