A potentially threatening message on facebook delivered a scare to schools in
Glenn County Thursday.
Glenn County Sheriff Rich Warren told Action News Now that the Sheriff's Department Facebook page was among the pages that received the post that read, "If there is a problem with a teacher, would administrators rather us protest, or use a gun?"
Sheriff Warren said some emails were also sent, and that there was a phone call to the County Board of Supervisors office.
Schools were alerted, and additional safety precautions were implemented but there were no lockdowns.
That's in part because the phone that was used was "pinged" to Arizona.
Authorities there are also working to locate the person responsible.
Sheriff Warren says he does not believe there was an imminent threat, but because of what happened in Rancho Tehama this week, he felt it was best to issue a warning out of an abundance of caution.
