Through a collaborative investigation with the Westmoreland School District a suspect was developed and on 03/16/2018 a juvenile was arrested. An eleven year old Westmoreland Middle School Student was charged with Falsely Reporting an Incident in the second degree, a Class E Felony and Criminal Nuisance in the second degree, a Class B Misdemeanor.
