Hudson Valley High School Threat Leads to Arrest
Tense moments Friday morning at Arlington High School, as the school had received word of threat from police. According to the Facebook post from school officials, Arlington High went into a lockout. Different from a lockdown, a lockout means that visitors entering the building are searched more than normal and students aren’t allowed to leave. There was an increase police presence throughout the day, as police worked on tracking down the source of the threat.
New York State Police, arrested 17-year-old Nicholas J Cioce of Lagrange. Cioce charged with making a terroristic threat, which is a felony. United States Customs and Border Protection found the threatening tweet, that talked about carrying out a shooting at a high school. They notified the Town of Poughkeepsie Police Department. Cioce was arrested and remanded to Dutchess County Jail. Anyone with information regarding this case is asked to call the State Police, Troop K at 845-677-7300.
