PIERRE PART – Assumption Parish Sheriff Leland Falcon reports the Wednesday arrest of a juvenile accused of terroristic threats in accordance with a Provisional Custody Order issued on Wednesday afternoon.

On February 19, 2018, the Sheriff’s Office received a complaint concerning social media posts which was perceived as a threat.  The posts were made by a juvenile.

On Wednesday, February 21, 2018, deputies were summoned to another complaint involving the same individual.

Due to the combined nature of events of Monday and today, Pierre Part Middle School was alerted and placed on lockdown.

Both Monday’s social media posts and today’s events did not occur on school grounds.

The Sheriff’s Office and the Assumption Parish School System worked the case jointly, and superintendent Earl "Tibby” Martinez released the following statement:
