Virginia Beach, Va. – Police have arrested and charged a 15-year-old Kellam High School student responsible for making another threat toward a Virginia Beach school.

The teen made the post on an online forum called 4Chan, according to police.

The threat did not specify which school was involved.

The teen has been charged with one felony count of communicating threat to school electronically. He is now being held in the Virginia Beach Juvenile Detention Center.

Multiple people brought the threat to the attention of the police department and Virginia Beach Public Schools personnel on Monday.

Officers were able to relate all of the complaints to the same threat and have identified and interviewed the teen.

According to police, the threat was non-credible and there is no longer an implied threat against any Virginia Beach Public School at this time.

This comes just a week after a 17-year-old was arrested for allegedly making an online threat to Princess Anne High School.
