January 17, 2014: Law Enforcement Update Arrest Made in Granite Falls over Cyber Threats
GRANITE FALLS, Wash.–Granite Falls police have arrested a 17 year-old male following a month-long series of online threats made against students and staff at the high school here. The male, who is a student at the high school, was taken into custody after a search warrant was issued last night at the 200 block of S. Indiana Ave. He confessed to making the series of violent threats against specific students, the high school student body and school staff since December 15, 2013. All of the threats were made via ASK.FM, a social networking web site based in Latvia which allows users to post a question or statement anonymously. The male was booked into the Denney Juvenile Justice Center for cyber-stalking and felony harassment.
Working with detectives from the Snohomish County Sheriff’s Office, police were able to establish probable cause for arrest by tracing the online postings back to the location where the search warrant was served
