Three 12-year-old students who attend Silver Trail Middle School in Pembroke Pines were arrested Sunday after authorities were notified about threatening messages that were posted on SnapChat.
Principal Steve Frazier notified parents about the incident.
He said the Pembroke Pines Police Department and Broward County Public Schools’ Special Investigative Unit investigated the threats and arrested the three students.
“I want to remind all of our students and families how seriously any and all threats are taken,” Frazier wrote in an email to parents. “Parents, please speak with your children to remind them that any threat- even if they think it is a joke – will result in tough consequences. School safety is all of our responsibility. If you see something – please say something.”
All three students face a 2nd degree felony charge for making a written threat to do bodily harm or commit an act of terrorism. One student faces an additional 2nd-degree felony charge for conspiracy to commit a criminal offense.
