15-Year-Old from Auburn Charged with Making Terrorist Threat


Auburn police say a 15-year-old has been arrested and charged with making a terrorist threat.

The Auburn Police Department Detective Section and School Resource Section immediately initiated an investigation to both determine the credibility of the threats and identify the suspect who created the posts. After further investigation, the fifteen-year-old juvenile was developed as a suspect.

The juvenile was arrested and taken to the Lee County Youth Development Center.
