Arrest made in latest threat against Sa-Hali school

On Friday afternoon police aprehended the 18-year-old male from Kamloops who is being held in custody pending a court appearance, according to police.

A threatening phone call was made to Sa-Hali secondary Friday morning leading staff to call in police who searched the school and determined the threat was a hoax.

Police have not released the name of the individual they arrested.

SD73 communications manager Diana Skoglund told KTW the male is not a current student, but did not know whether or not he is a former student.

It was the third threat against the school in the last two weeks.

A female student was warned by Mounties last Tuesday after posting a threat against the school on social media, and, this past Wednesday, the school was evacuated after someone wrote "find the bomb" in spray paint on the building.

There have been a total of seven threats made in the past two weeks against local schools, two of which occurred Friday as school staff found bomb-threatening graffiti on Dallas elementary.
