The student accused of issuing “terroristic” threats at Roosevelt High School has been identified as 17-year-old Ariel Oliver. She was charged with four felony counts.
Oliver was arrested earlier. North East Independent School District spokeswoman Aubrey Chancellor also said in a press release that several messages were posted on social media sites threatening the Roosevelt campus on Friday morning.
North East ISD police quickly launched an investigation and were able to establish that the post were coming from a fake account and were not credible.
One of the first clues authorities got that the suspect’s a student was that the threats were posted from inside the school. The student was eventually identified through her Google account. The student once busted admitted her wrongdoings.
Chancellor said in the release that they treat such matters as grave issues. She said: “Threats like this are not funny, and NEISD will absolutely not tolerate them. It’s unfortunate that a student would instill unnecessary fear in thousands of students and families.”
Chancellor also stressed their determination to “prosecute the individual to the fullest extent of the law and she would be charged with making a terroristic threat.
