Matawan-Aberdeen student made ‘terroristic threats,’ cops say
A student in the Matawan-Aberdeen school district was arrested Saturday after making "terroristic threats," police said.
Aberdeen Police say the student and guardians are cooperating in the investigation and they don't believe there is any credible threat against any school or person.
Even though the threat does not appear to pose any current danger, police say the investigation continues into the incident.
"Student and staff safety are always a priority and we are continuously collaborating with the school district to increase safety," Aberdeen Police said in a statement.
Police are urging anyone with knowledge of the incident to call Aberdeen Police Detective Anthony Valentino at 732-566-2054 extension 205.
"Please remember to report any and all suspicious activity as soon as possible."
