This is in reference to our earlier post today about the school threat situation. Per Buena Park P.D.: "Reference the threats made against the Buena Park High School and other area schools. The Anaheim Police Department has arrested the suspect. There was no credible threat. Subsequent posts of threats have been found to be re-posts and there are still no credible threats. No arrests have been made regarding those posts. These matters are taken very seriously and investigated to the fullest extent. As anonymous as some social media platforms appear to be, we can and will find those who make threats against our schools."

Earlier this week, the Anaheim Police Department arrested a fourteen (14) year old boy, who is a student at Western High School for suspicion of using social media to threaten a shooting spree at Western, Magnolia, Cypress and Buena Park High Schools. Since the arrest, new social media posts have surfaced. Although the posts appear to be unsubstantiated and did not originate in Cypress, they are being investigated by law enforcement. As a precaution, the Cypress Police Department will maintain an increased presence at local schools.
