3/2/2018 10:52:00 AM Triton student in custody after threat to school
A Triton student was in custody and scheduled to make a first court appearance Friday morning after allegedly making threats against the school.
Dodge County Sheriff Scott Rose said that his office received information shortly before 11 p.m. on Thursday, March 1, that a student had advised other students both verbally and via Snapchat they better not come to school on Friday because he was going to harm people.
After interviewing the reporter and witnesses, deputies located the juvenile at his home shortly before midnight and he was taken into custody.
Rose said the juvenile admitted making the threats but said he was not serious with them. He was taken to the juvenile holding facility in Rochester until his first court appearance Friday on charges determined by the Dodge County Attorney's office.
Immediately after the arrest, Rose said, Triton officials were contact by School Resource Officer David Skadson and briefed on the incident.
School officials notified of the situation via email Friday morning and said that there was no danger to students and school would be held as usual.
