Assumption Parish Sheriff Leland Falcon reports the arrest of a juvenile in connection with terroristic threats at the Belle Rose Middle School. 

The arrest occurred on Tuesday, a spokeswoman said. Deputies were called to the school to investigate a possible threat. 

Detectives interviewed a number of people and based on those interviews, investigators applied for and received a Provisional Custody Order which was executed on Tuesday.  The Provisional Custody Order was for: Terrorizing.

The responsible individual remains in custody. Due to the age of the offender, the Sheriff’s Office cannot release any additional information.
