Late this afternoon, a juvenile West Fargo resident and a juvenile Fargo resident were taken into custody for threatening violent acts at Cheney Middle School on social media platforms.
As part of the investigation, search warrants were executed at two separate locations. The investigation indicated that the individuals acted independently of each other and that there are no other suspects to identify. West Fargo Public Schools have been notified of the arrests.
Reports have been forwarded to the Cass County State’s Attorney’s for consideration of charging both suspects for the act of Terrorizing, a Class C Felony under North Dakota Century Code. Due to the ongoing nature of these cases, the West Fargo Police Department will not provide any further comment.
The West Fargo Police Department would like to commend the students and parents who reported the threat Monday night and helped bring this to a positive conclusion.
