12/8/19, 8 p.m.: The Broward Sheriff’s Office has been working throughout this weekend investigating several social media posts made on Friday, December 6, 2019 and over this weekend against Cypress Bay High School.
The Broward Sheriff’s Office has a plan in place to address these anonymous posts, to include additional staffing on Monday morning. Per Captain Butler of the Broward Sheriff’s Office Weston District, “We take all threats seriously and anyone found having transmitted a threat will be prosecuted.”
On Friday night, threats were made involving Falcon Cove Middle School, which resulted in the arrest on Saturday of a 12 year-old middle school student.
We urge parents to speak to children and teens about the serious nature of threats made on social media, and remind everyone if you SEE something, SAY something. Always report suspicious activity to law enforcement.
