NAPOLEON POLICE INVESTIGATE THREAT OF VIOLENCE, HS

A Napoleon student was detained over the weekend in connection with a threat that was allegedly made last Friday, warning of violence in the building for tomorrow, when students returned.   Napoleon High school contacted Napoleon Police about the situation, and a criminal investigation was initiated.   The student had apparently made the threat to other students late last week.    After discussion with the Henry County Prosecutor’s Office, it was determined that a charge of Inducing Panic was appropriate, a first degree misdemeanor.  The student and parent were contacted, and the youth was incarcerated at the Juvenile Detention Center of Northwest Ohio.  A hearing will now be scheduled in Henry County Juvenile Court.  Police report, Napoleon students were never subjected to an actual threat; but students and parents should be aware a heightened law enforcement presence will be in the buildings tomorrow.     Any questions can be directed to the Napoleon Superintendent’s office at 599-7015.
