ORLAND, Calif. — The Orland Police Department is reporting that a threat made against Orland High School is not credible.
Officers with OPD said they received a report of threats made to Orland High School early Friday. Investigators found that a social media post indicated a former student was going to carry out "an act of violence" towards the school.
Investigators are now saying that the subject is out of state and that there are no credible threats of violence directed at the school, or any school within Glenn County.
According to the Orland Unified School District, the suspect is in a treatment facility in Utah. They noted that no threats made against any campus, students or staff members.
Family members of the suspect who were contacted by police said they were concerned because of his reported mental illness and that he could legally purchase firearms.
The school district also said they are working to increase campus safety and security.
