HOLLAND PATENT, N.Y. – The Oneida County Sheriff’s office says they have made an arrest following a threat made on social media against Holland Patent Middle School.

Authorities are not releasing the identity of the person arrested and are not saying whether the juvenile is a student at Holland Patent. The juvenile is charged with making a terroristic threat, a class D felony.

The sheriff’s department was called to the school at approximately 1:10 PM on Wednesday to respond a reported social media threat. The social media threat forced school officials to put the school into lockout mode as a precaution. Authorities later determined the threat to be non-credible. No students were in any danger and no students were hurt.

Officials say the investigation is ongoing.
