OXFORD, Ohio (WXIX) - A student was arrested Wednesday morning for making a threat against Talawanda High School, according to the district.

The district said the student was intercepted within minutes of making the threat and confessed to making the threat.

The student reported to both administration and law enforcement that he made the threat in an effort to get school canceled.

“Talawanda appreciates the administration, the SRO, and the Oxford Police Department for their action which resulted in quickly resolving the incident and keeping our students, staff, and school safe,” the district said in a news release.

Oxford police filed charges against the 15-year-old for making terroristic threats, inducing panic and vandalism, according to butler county juvenile court officials.

He was taken to the Butler County Juvenile Detention Center and will appear in juvenile court Thursday morning for a preliminary hearing.
