HAMILTON CITY, Calif. - The Glenn County Sheriff’s Office says a 16-year-old student from Hamilton City was taken into custody Tuesday after a threatening social media post circulated on the internet. 


According to Glenn County deputies, the major crimes unit for the county was able to identify the student and later applied for a search warrant to search the teenager’s home.


Once the search warrant was granted, sheriff’s detectives, ATF agents and probation officers executed the search warrant Tuesday evening.


Inside the searched home Glenn County deputies found airsoft firearms, knives and a small sword, but no real firearms, officials said.


The 16-year-old was contacted and reportedly admitted to writing the social media post, and was later arrested and booked into the Tehama County Juvenile Hall for threats, officials said.


There was no specific information about what the post said or which school it allegedly targeted.

The identity of the suspect will not be released to the public due to age.
