Woodlawn Student Arrested for Terrorizing
It seems reports of "creepy clowns" have reached Caddo Parish.
A 16-year-old Woodlawn High School student has been arrested for posting threats to fellow students and teachers on her Instagram account.
Caddo Sheriff Steve Prator says posts made to an account for "wally_clown" threatened that students and teachers would be kidnapped and killed today. The posts were made Sunday and were messaged to the sheriff's office by followers who saw them. Other posts threatened students at Fair Park High School.
After learning of the threats, both campuses were searched and additional law enforcement officers were called in to watch for suspicious activity.
Sheriff's Detective Jared Marshall identified the juvenile responsible for the Woodlawn threats and arrested her for terrorizing. Her name isn't being released. She's been booked into the Caddo Juvenile Detention Center.
Marshall says the Fair Park threats are still being investigated and other arrests are possible.
