News

COHOES, N.Y. (NEWS10)-The Cohoes Police Department said a 12-year-old male was arrested for attempted making a terroristic threat through social media.

The police said they started an investigation Wednesday after receiving multiple calls from the Cohoes School District and residents about a social media post containing references to a duffle bag and people getting hurt. Police said they searched the juvenile’s home and it did not appear to be a credible threat.

The juvenile, whose name is not being released because of his age, was arraigned in Albany Family Court.
