Teenager Charged Following Threats Made To A North Lakes School

Boy facing serious penalties

Teenager Charged Following Threats Made To A North Lakes School

Detectives have charged a teenage boy following threats made to a North Lakes school on Monday night.

The boy was charged with one count each of use carriage service to make a threat to cause harm, and threatening violence. It is unknown if he is a local student.

Police say the alleged incident does not relate to an initial online, non-specific threat posted on the weekend, or a threat at a North Lakes school yesterday afternoon, with police investigations continuing into these incidents.

"While there is no credible information to indicate any direct threat to any individual or school, the Queensland Police Service takes all threats seriously with public safety paramount." QPS said in a statement.

Schools in the area remain open today, while police are continuing to work with Education Queensland and service providers to track down the source of the initial posts.

"Making threats, regardless of the forum, are treated seriously and offenders face serious criminal charges with significant penalties."
