MEDFORD, Ore. — The Medford Police Department say that they have one student in custody after they were tipped off to a threat of potential violence written on a bathroom stall in the school. The threat named a specific date—February 21, 2018.
After a police officer assigned to North Medford High School was told about the threat, a detective employed surveillance footage at the school to indentify and interview several students who may have been responsible. One juvenile male was arrested and brought to the Juvenile Detention facility, charged with Disorderly Conduct 1.
The suspect was a sophomore at North Medford High, but police now believe that he had no intention of following through on the threat.
Medford Police would like anyone with additional information on the threat to call Lt. Kerry Curtis at their media line: 541-774-2299
