NEW BOSTON, MI – On Wednesday March 7th, 2018, the School Resource Officer and Huron Township Police Detectives launched an investigation at Miller Elementary in Huron Township after a potentially threatening note was found in a girls bathroom.
The School Resource Officer and Detective Bureau worked late into the evening. The student who authored the suspicious note was identified as an 11-year-old Miller Elementary 5th Grader. The student was located yesterday evening and is fully cooperative in the investigation. The initial investigation is indicating that the suspicious note was not intended by the student to be a threat. School Administration is handing the situation internally with the student and their parents who are fully cooperative.
“The note contained some key words that triggered concern and an investigation. In response to any potential threat, we will always take the position to overreact rather than underreact. I do not believe there was ever any threat to the safety of the students in this instance.”
