Text to student results in school lock down

A mid morning lockdown at Langley Fine Arts school was lifted at approximately 11:45 a.m. today. The school had been locked down after a female student received a threatening text message from an individual believed to be from outside of the school, but known to the student.

After receiving the text, the student reported it to the school principal who felt there was enough of a concern for student safety to contacted police. It was out of an abundance caution the principal decided to lock down the school while police began their investigation.

Officers determined the source of the text and located the individual believed to be responsible. Police now have a 32 year old Langley man in custody as a potential suspect for the threats.
The investigation is ongoing with charges of Uttering Threats being considered.

Police would like to thank the students and staff of Langley Fine Arts for their cooperation in the matter.

A 30 year old sexually exploiting a teenager and gathering a bully mob to intimidate her until she killed herself?
Yikes alright. technology today.

I'm glad to hear this school took these extreme measures - it sends the clear message that it won't be tolerated.

Now if we could just get all the kids to report these things, along with older men enticing them into prostitution and drug rings....

She could be an adult (the man is known to her) and she took the appropriate action.

actually it has been going down for quite awhile...the real question is can "we" pull ourselves out of it before it is too late!
Over the Internet, you can pretend to be anyone or anything. I'm amazed that so many people choose to be complete douchebags.
