May 30, 2018 (Santee) -- This morning, the Sheriff’s department announced that deputies at the Santee station became aware yesterday of a possible school threat posted on social media.

“The post was not specific to any school, but was spreading online amongst students from Santana and West Hills High School,” Sergeant James Golembiewski states in a press release.

He adds, “Deputies conducted a thorough investigation and concluded the threat was not valid.”

Making threats against a school, even as a joke, is a crime and the San Diego District Attorney is prosecuting several such cases that occurred at other local schools.
