Oroville, Ca—On February 27, 2018, Butte County Sheriff’s Office (BCSO) was contacted by a Prospect High School Official advising that a 16 year old male student had made threats to kill a teacher.

Deputy Nicholaw received information that the student was staying at a family member’s home in the Oroville area. Deputy Nicholaw contacted the student at the residence, and arrested him for making criminal threats.
The student was booked into Juvenile Hall, his name will not be released due to the fact he is a juvenile.
