CAVE JUNCTION, Ore. — An Illinois Valley High School student is in custody after deputies had to put all Three Rivers schools in Cave Junction on "lock-in," based on allegations of a threat.

According to the Josephine County Sheriff's Office (JCSO), Illinois Valley school officials reported an alleged threat towards the high school just after 10 a.m. on Tuesday. Deputies reached the school within minutes, and reportedly placed all three schools in Cave Junction on a precautionary "lock-in" until an investigation could be completed.

Deputies then found more information about the source of the call, learning from school staff that a 15-year-old student had originated the threats against the school.

After further investigation, deputies arrested the student for Disorderly Conduct in the First Degree. The student was brought to the Josephine County Juvenile Justice Center "without incident."

Because the student is a juvenile, their identity will not be revealed by authorities.

JCSO says that the matter has been sent to the Josephine County District Attorney's Office.
