FRANKFORT, N.Y. – The Frankfort Village Police have arrested a juvenile in connection with the recent threats at Frankfort-Schuyler Junior/Senior High School. The minor was charged with making a terroristic threat, a D felony.

The child was released to the parents, issued an appearance ticket and will appear in Herkimer County Family Court at a later date.

There have been three instances of written threats at the school from Sept. 20 to Oct. 3. Police did not specify if the suspect was involved in all of the incidents.

On Wednesday, students at Frankfort-Schuyler were evacuated after a student reported a written threat in the boy's bathroom. The school went into a shelter-in-place before the decison was made to evacuate. School was resumed the following day as scheduled, when another threat was found in the school bathroom. Police investigated and found the threat had no credibility, so students stayed in school for the remainder of the day.

The first incident at Frankfort-Schuyler happened on Sept. 20, when the school was put on lockdown after a written threat was found in the bathroom during ninth period, the last class of the school day. Students were then released under a 'controlled dismissal.'
