by | Apr 9, 2023 | Police and Fire

From the Spotsylvania Sheriff’s Office:

On Saturday the Sheriff’s Office was made aware of an online social media threat to a school with the initials “RHS”. After an extensive investigation, Detectives have identified and interviewed the student who posted the threat on social media. The threat is deemed not credible and the case is pending review with the Commonwealths Attorney’s Office. The Sheriff’s Office personnel will have extra presence at Riverbend High School on Tuesday when students return to answer any questions or concerns over this recent threat.
Every threat must be taken seriously. Threats of violence is no laughing matter and even if students believe a threat is a joke, they should let an adult know rather than repost it.
