OCEANSIDE, Calif. — A 17-year-old high school student in North County was arrested Thursday after he allegedly made terrorist threats against his school.

The student, who attends Mission Vista High School in Oceanside, made the threat on Snapchat with a post that read, “Don’t go to school tomorrow because the cleansing will commence,” investigators said.

Police were contacted after students and parents who saw the post alerted school officials. More parents learned of the threat after the Vista United School District sent them an automated message.

Officers arrested the teen at his Vista home later in the evening, Bussey said. The suspect, whose name was withheld because he is a minor, was booked into juvenile hall on suspicion of issuing a criminal threat.

The student did not have access to any weapons, according to the Oceanside Police Department. School resumed as usual Friday with increased police presence.
