13-year-old girl charged with 2 felonies for making terroristic threats against Rochester school



A 13-year-old girl was arrested Wednesday after allegedly making a terrorist threat against her school in Rochester.

The Town of Greece Police Department said in a statement that the threat was made on Snapchat against Arcadia Middle School. The message was reported by Greece Central School District security just after 6 a.m.

“We worked with security to mitigate the danger and disruption to students, staff, and parents,” the police department said.

The author of the Snapchat post was identified as a 13-year-old female student at the school who was later charged with making a terroristic threat and falsely reporting an incident in the first degree — both Class D felonies.

The specifics of the threat were not made public. The girl’s identity was not released.

“The student was issued an expedited appearance ticket returnable to Monroe County Probation. We appreciate the quick response and work done cooperatively between the school district and our officers,” the police department said.

The incident comes less than two weeks after a transphobic and homophobic bomb threat was made at Arcadia High School, leading to an evacuation. The threat referenced a fight that had occurred in the girls’ restroom earlier in February, but the school did not offer additional details.
