A student has been charged with a felony after the Oskaloosa Police Department responded to what was classified as a threat.
Police say Oskaloosa High School was placed in a “soft” lockdown shortly after noon on March 8th after learning of a threat against the school on social media. School staffers also put a soft lockdown at the elementary and middle schools as a precaution.
During the investigation, a 16-year-old male was identified as a suspect. Authorities say he later admitted to posting the threat on social media. The suspect was charged with making arson threats, a Class D felony.
