Police Investigate Threatening E-mail Sent to Arcadia High School

The e-mail stated two students had handguns on campus.

Police are looking for the source of a threatening e-mail sent to an Arcadia High School administrator Thursday.

Shortly after 10 a.m., school officials notified detectives about an anonymous email indicating two students had smuggled handguns onto campus. Police arrived shortly thereafter. They determined no threat existed and did not call for a lockdown.

Students and police remained on campus through the dismissal time of 12:27 p.m. The school had a minimum-day schedule due to mid-term testing.    

Anyone with information on this incident is encouraged to contact the Arcadia Police Department at (626) 574-5150. Reference case #1300378. 

If you prefer to provide information anonymously, you may call “Crime Stoppers” by dialing 800-222-TIPS (8477), texting the letters TIPLA plus your tip to CRIMES (274637), or using the tip page at Los Angeles Regional Crime Stoppers.
