ELDRED, NY — On Sunday, September 3, the Sullivan County Sheriff’s Office received a complaint of a threat being made via Instagram against the Eldred Junior and Senior High School in the Town of Highland.
Working with the state police, and the Sullivan County District Attorney’s Office, deputies executed a search warrant at 6:00 a.m. Tuesday morning, September 5, at a residence in Barryville and another in Eldred where they confiscated an electronic device and took a 15-year-old into custody. There were no firearms found at either location.
The 15-year-old, whose name cannot be released because of their age, was charged with the Class D Felony of Making a Terroristic Threat. They were issued an appearance ticket to report to Sullivan County Probation, pending further action in Family Court. The sheriff’s office was assisted in this investigation by Eldred School officials, the Highland Town Board and the Town of Lumberland Constables. The sheriff’s office has school resource officers assigned to the Eldred Junior and Senior High Schools as well as the Mackenzie Elementary School in Glen Spey.
