PCPD Chief statement on Facebook threat

Ponca City Now - August 27, 2014 4:58 pm

PCPD Police Chief released the following statement in regards to a Facebook post regarding the Ponca City High School.

I know that many people are worried and scared about the threat that was posted on Facebook last night, so we wanted to release some information about the steps that have been taken thus far. Officers from this department including the School Resource Officer at Po-Hi have looked into the post, and determined who was running the page it was posted on. We have contacted the administrator of the page and the post was pulled. The page has been reported to Facebook for any action they deem necessary. The post was also forwarded to the FBI this morning. A walkthrough of the Fieldhouse and surrounding area has been conducted and nothing was found. We are still trying to determine the original source of the threats.
