New Braunfels High School student arrested for calling in threat that resulted in hours long lockdown

SAN ANTONIO (KTSA News) — A 15 year old New Braunfels High School student has been arrested on charges he called in a false tip about a gun on the campus.

The September 8 incident involved more than 100 officers who responded to the school after  they were told someone on campus had a gun. The threat led to a lockdown that lasted well into the evening, with students waiting at the school’s football stadium until the lockdown was lifted.

Police swept the campus and determined the threat was not credible.

The investigation began immediately which led officers to a 15-year-old boy. He was arrested Wednesday on a charge of false alarm or report.

If convicted, he could spend up to two-years in state jail and be fined up to ten-thousand-dollars.

New Braunfels police say the teen was arrested without incident and is currently being held at the Guadalupe County Juvenile Detention Center.
