Description of Incident:
Broward Sheriff’s Office Weston deputies, working with investigators from the Threat Management Unit and the Real Time Crime Center, have arrested a 16-year-old male for threats of violence made Friday and Monday to Cypress Bay High School in Weston. 

The school was placed on a code red Friday, Dec. 6, after school employees received texts and emails warning there would be a shooting at the school. The school was thoroughly searched as detectives followed leads in an attempt to identify the sender. 

Monday, Dec. 9, the threats continued as faculty and students received more threatening messages, causing the school to be placed on code yellow. 

Through the investigation, detectives were able to arrest the male, who is a junior at Cypress Bay. He’s being transported to the Juvenile Assessment Center to face two counts for making a false report concerning the use of a firearm and two counts for writing threats to kill. 

This is the third teen arrested since Thursday for making a threat of violence at a school. All threats are taken very seriously and will be thoroughly investigated.
