Casper Police Release Details of School District Lockout
The Casper Police Department has released details of the incident that prompted a district-wide lockout early Wednesday.
Here is the complete statement from police:
The Casper Police Department has completed interviews with individuals having knowledge of threats made towards Natrona County Schools. The individuals who were detained during this investigation were three juveniles. It has been determined that the threats were made by one person, and the threats were not made towards any particular school or specific individual(s).
The initial information related to the school threats surfaced while Casper Police Department Officers were investigating the report of an aggravated residential burglary where a handgun was stolen. The juveniles who were questioned today regarding the threats were implicated with last night’s stolen gun incident. The Casper Police Department worked closely with the Natrona County School District, cooperatively sharing information to ensure the safety of our community.
Currently, one juvenile has been arrested related to today’s investigation. The Casper Police Department is working with the Natrona County District Attorney’s Office to determine what criminal charges the juveniles may face.
At this time, the Casper Police Department is unaware of any current threats towards any Natrona County Schools.
