ALBION, N.Y. – A 16-year-old student is accused of threatening violence against his school district.

The Orleans County Sheriff’s Office says an Albion school resource deputy learned of a threatening Snapchat post targeting the district.

The student, deputies say, said the post was merely a joke.

The teen has been charged with making a terroristic threat, a felony. He was arraigned in youth court and released to the custody of his mother. He had to immediately report to probation for intake and electronic monitoring.

The suspect will return to court on a later date.
