INDIANAPOLIS (WISH) — A juvenile female has been arrested after police say she confessed to making online threats against Warren Central High School.

Officers from the Indianapolis Metropolitan Police Department were dispatched to the 2200 block of Prairie Fire Lane on Wednesday on reports of intimidation, when they learned the threats had been sent via social media.

The threat was circulating on social media Wednesday evening.

Detectives from the IMPD Cyber Crimes Unit and the Criminal Intelligence Unit were called in to assist, interviewing several people. They also recovered electronic evidence.

On Thursday, investigators with the Indianapolis Metropolitan Police Department were able to track the suspect’s IP address. IMPD said that the department felt confident that no public safety concern existed.

On Friday, IMPD announced that a juvenile female had confessed to making the threats and was arrested. Warren School police took the female into custody, and she has been transported to the Juvenile Center.

Police say the image of the male seen in threats was taken from the internet and was unrelated.

The Marion County Prosecutor’s Office will review the case to make a final charging decision.
