Conway, SC - CONWAY, SC (WMBF) – Officers with the Conway Police Department have arrested a 15-year-old Conway juvenile Tuesday in connection with posts made to local television stations' Facebook fan pages.
The juvenile, whose name has not been released, turned himself into Conway Police along with his parents and their attorney. He was then released to the custody of his parents.
On Sept. 10, the Conway Police Department received calls from two local television stations reporting someone had posted a threat to blow up Conway High School on each station's Facebook fan page. WMBF News was one of those fan pages.
Investigators worked with Facebook and Horry Telephone investigators to identify the source of the threat. Those threats resulted in authorities conducting protective sweeps of Conway High School on Sunday evening with K-9 unites, and increasing police presence in the school on Monday.
