A Portola juvenile is in custody following an arrest Sept. 18 by Plumas County sheriff’s deputies.
Earlier in the afternoon, a Portola Junior-Senior High School student reported a potential bomb threat to a staff member. The sheriff’s office launched an immediate investigation resulting in the arrest of a 17-year-old student who was responsible for the criminal threat, said Plumas County Sheriff Todd Johns.
The juvenile was taken into custody and released to the Plumas County Probation Department. The case will be referred to the Plumas County District Attorney’s Office to review for prosecution. Because this case involves a juvenile, no additional information is available to be released.
At this time there are no further threats to Portola Junior-Senior High School, Johns said.
“The Plumas County Sheriff’s Office is committed to protecting and serving the community by
upholding public safety, maintaining law and order, and fostering a secure environment for all
our Plumas County students and school staff,” said Investigations Sergeant Steve Peay. “The sheriff’s office would like to remind students, parents, and the public: if you see something, say something.”
