A juvenile was found to be responsible for making threats toward Southeast Middle School, the Kernersville Police Department said in a news release Tuesday.

The threats originated on a social media account and included a fake picture. The nature of the threats was not disclosed.

Kernersville Police and the State Bureau of Investigation are investigating.

A spokesman with the school system said schools are closed this week for spring break and they can’t comment on student information.

“We are aware of the posts related to Southeast Middle and have worked with the Kernersville Police to investigate,” spokesman Brent Campbell said. “We appreciate their diligence in looking into the posts. We take every post seriously and appreciate parents making us aware.”

Anyone with information is asked to contact the Kernersville Police Department at 336-996-3177.
