A 17-year old youth is facing a charge of uttering threats in connection to an alleged threat made against an 18-year old student through social media.
The potential threat caused two Regina High Schools to enter a secure-the-building mode on Monday.
The investigation started on Monday morning, when police received information a student at Balfour High School had received a possible threat through social media. Investigators were assigned to determine the identity of the sender.
At the same time, School Resource Officers were present at both Balfour Collegiate and Miller Comprehensive Catholic High School, as the schools entered their secure-the-building mode.
Secure-the-building mode is a situation where the all the outside doors are locked to secure the building and entry and exit is monitored by the police and school administration through the front door.
Regular school activities continued inside and the protocol was lifted at about 2:30 on Monday.
The 17-year old was arrested without incident and subsequently charged.
The name of the accused will not be released, in accordance with the provisions of the Youth Criminal Justice Act.
He has been charged with uttering threats and was released on an undertaking to appear in Youth Court on February 25, at 9:30 a.m.
