A student at Clemens High School in the Schertz Cibolo Universal City ISD is facing criminal charges after Schertz Police say she admitted to leaving a threat inside a girl's restroom at the school on Friday, News Radio 1200 WOAI reports.
The contents of the threat have not been released, but it prompted officials to deploy a large police presence at the school on Monday. There were no incidents reported at the school.
Schertz Police say one of their officers who was on duty at the school received information about the girl, described as a 'juvenile student.'
She was at school at the time, and Schertz Police said in a statement she 'confessed to making the threat.'
"The student was then detained without incident and transported to the Juvenile Detention Center in Seguin," police said.
Since the person involved is a juvenile, no information was available about possible charges.
Texas police agencies say bogus threats of violence have become more common since concern about school violence has begun to rise in recent years. They warn that young people making these allegations, either on social media, verbally, or through notes, can face 'life altering' criminal charges and potential jail time.
