Mineral County Deputies Investigate Threat Made to Teacher

Posted: Updated:

Mineral County Sheriff Stewart E. Handte says authorities are investigating a threat made to a high school teacher's life that appeared on Facebook.

Handte says deputies were made aware of the March 28th threat yesterday and immediately started investigating the issue.

The Mineral County Sheriff's Office has turned over the findings to the District Attorney and are awaiting a decision on whether or not to press charges against the unidentified high school-aged student.

That student has since been suspended and now faces expulsion from Mineral County High School. 

Handte says the student has been taken into custody and is currently at the juvenile detention center in Carson City.

Handte says once his office was notified by the school, authorities met with school authorities and the district superintendent.
