Barnegat Police determine school threat to be unsubstantiated
There was no school threat in Barnegat Township on Wednesday, but police traced the social media posts to the home of a 13-year old 7th grade student at the Brackman School.
The student commented on a social media post a Florida resident made of a clip from the movie 'Scarface', saying "it's gonna get lit at school tomorrow.".
The Floridian shared with a student know at Brackman who turned it over to school officials and police who went to the students house and spoke with him and his parents.
They found the student was not threatening violence but they took an air-soft toy gun and antique sword for safekeeping.
Police Chief Keith Germain released a full statement about the incident on Facebook:
