More Indiana school threats are occurring with some students being arrested. 

Two female students were arrested today and a male student was recently arrested in Orange County for threats made to Paoli High School.  Threats made to East Washington Community Schools have not been resolved. 

A 12-year-old girl was arrested this morning after she allegedly made online threats towards students and staff at Dugger-Union Community School.

The girl was arrested on a felony charge of intimidation around 12:30 a.m. at her home in Shelburn.

She was taken to the Southwest Indiana Regional Youth Village in Vincennes.

Police say the girl made multiple threats through Snapchat.

Sheriff Clark Cottom says officers found no weapons or credible means to carry out the threats, but they handle all threats as if they are real.

“If you threaten our schools, we will hunt you down and arrest you,” he added.

Sheriff Cottom says officers will assist the Dugger Town Marshal with foot patrol at the school today.

The case is among about a dozen school threats in Indiana since the deadly shooting last week at a Florida high school.

Social media threats have also resulted in the arrests of two male students from Carmel High School near Indianapolis and a student at Columbus East High School in southern Indiana.

Evansville police says a 17-year-old boy faces intimidation charges for writing a violence threat on a bathroom stall door last week at Reitz High School.
