Port St. Lucie Police investigate "Snap Chat" threats to local High School
SUBJECT: Port St. Lucie Police investigate "Snap Chat" threats to local High School.
On January 15, 2018 at around 10:00 pm, Port St. Lucie Police were informed of a "Snap Chat" post that conveyed a threat to a local public High School.
During the investigation police learned that a 15 year old Treasure Coast High School student posted on Snap Chat a picture of what looked to be a real handgun with the caption "I dare anyone to come to school Tuesday". Police were able to track down the source of the post, which lead them to a Port St. Lucie home. Police made contact with the 15 year old student and his parents. Officers also located the BB gun that was pictured in the post. The student told police that the post was a joke and the picture is in fact a BB gun.
Port St. Lucie Police will continue to investigate this matter and will consult with the State Attorney's Office for possible criminal charges.
