Threatening Facebook Message Ends with Brief High School Lockdown & Student Cited With Creating a False Report



Vt. State Police - 5:55 pm Tue Feb 20th, 2018

On 2/20/18 at approximately 11:20 AM the Franklin County Sheriff Department contacted the state police and requested assistance dealing with an incident at the Bellows Free Academy (BFA) in Fairfax.

The sheriff deputy was seeking assistance involving a threatening Facebook message that a female student had received. The deputy advised the that the school administrators had seen the Facebook message and made the decision to place the school in "lock down" before sending all the students home early. Uniform state troopers as well as state police detectives responded to the school.

The juvenile female who received the threatening Facebook message, causing the school to be locked down, was off campus at another location when she reportedly received the message. The female student who received the threatening message forwarded the message to another student who in turn notified school administrators. During the course of the investigation state police detectives learned that the juvenile female, who the message was directed toward, had created the threatening message and sent it to herself from a fictitious social media account.

The state police contacted the Franklin County State's Attorney office about the matter. The juvenile female was issued a citation to appear in court for "False Alarms and Reports."
