Press Release from Sheriff Ray Cross:
On Tuesday, February 27
, the Dade County Sheriff’s Office was notified by the principal at Dade County High School, that someone had written a threat (“f*** this school, im killing all of you 2morrow”) on the bathroom wall inside the high school.
The school administrators investigated the incident, and determined who potentially made the threat, based off of video evidence and witnesses. Dade County High School then provided our agency with statements, photographs, video, and a possible suspect. The female suspect was immediately placed on suspension from the school, per the principal.
Dade County Detectives, along with Sheriff Cross, located the female suspect and brought her to the Sheriff’s Office for questioning. After being interviewed by Dade County Detectives, the female subject was taken in to custody and charged with Terroristic Threats and Acts (felony, GA Code 16-11-37).
She was then booked in to the Dade County Jail, where she is currently being housed.
Sheriff Cross wants the community to know that the Dade County Sheriff’s Office takes these types of threats very seriously. He also wants everyone to know that these types of incidents will be prosecuted to the fullest extent that Georgia law allows.
