Extra security at two MN schools following threat

Posted: Updated:

Sleepy Eye and New Ulm schools have added extra security as students head back to classes following the arrest of a juvenile accused of making threats of a shooting.
 
Sleepy Eye Public Schools Superintendent John Cselovszki notified parents that a suspect was in custody for making threats and that security would be added Monday.
 
Sleepy Eye police investigated the threats after they were notified of a Facebook posting. Investigators say the threats were directed at several area schools.
 
That caused New Ulm Superintendent Harold Remme to take similar action. Remme assured parents the suspect making the threat was in custody, but that security would be increased at schools on Monday.
 
The Journal says the juvenile was arrested Saturday and taken to the Prairie Lakes Detention Center in Wilmar.
