Man accused of making terrorist threat towards girl and her high school


GLOVERSVILLE, N.Y. – An arrest has been made in connection to the Gloversville High School lockout on Wednesday.

The Gloversville Police Department says that after an investigation, they have charged Trevor Blanchard, 24, with Making Terroristic Threats and Disseminating Indecent Materials to Minors.

Blanchard is accused of harassing a female student at the high school via the social media platform Snap chat.  According to authorities, the student refused to send text messaged pictures of parts of her body to him.  That is when, police say, Blanchard threatened the girl and told her that if she did not send pictures to him he would "go Columbine on the Gloversville High School."

The school website states a police presence was at the school on Monday, as well, having officers walk through the hallways to help ensure students' safety.

The lock out on Wednesday lasted about one hour, according to the school.  Police presence remained in the school buildings through the early afternoon.
