SAGINAW, MI (WNEM) -

Saginaw Police have made an arrest after a school threat was posted to social media last week.

Superintendent Heidi Ferguson said classes at Saginaw Learn to Earn Academy were canceled Friday, March 2 due to the threat made on Facebook.

Now Saginaw Police report that a 14-year-old boy was arrested on March 6 at around 7:30 a.m. after a search warrant was served at a home on the city’s east side.

The teen is at the Saginaw Juvenile Detention Center, and police said he will be charged with making a terrorist threat and using a computer to commit a crime.

More than 160 children attend the charter school, which houses 7th through 12th-grade students.

Saginaw Police said:

“My detective worked tirelessly on this case and was able to come to a rapid resolution.  We want the public to know if you make any type of terrorist threats using social media we will track you down!”
