HILLSDALE — Authorities arrested an unidentified 15-year-old student of Hillsdale High School Wednesday, April 3, for a threat to the school discovered on Snapchat.

The Michigan State Police Operations Center in Lansing received credible information from the Federal Bureau of Investigations Wednesday regarding a tip they had received about the Snapchat post.

The information was turned over to troopers with the Michigan State Police Jackson Post who, working with Hillsdale City Police and the Hillsdale County Sheriff’s Office, investigated the incident and arrested the student.

While the student was not identified, Hillsdale County Prosecutor Neal Brady formally charged the teen with threat of terrorism, a 20 year felony in Michigan.

Authorities lodged the teen Wednesday in the Hillsdale County Youth Home. The teen will be subjected to criminal procedures in the Hillsdale County Probate Court under Judge Michelle Bianchi.

Brady’s office has taken a strong-handed approach to school threats in the wake of the Oxford Schools mass shooting on Nov. 30, 2021, after which a number of copycat threats plagued school districts throughout Hillsdale County leading to an increased police presence spreading fear throughout student bodies and causing parents to panic.
