Press Release False Threat to Chelsea High School

On April 19, 2021, at approximately 12:45 PM, there was a report of a potential threat at Chelsea High School.  The school immediately followed safety protocols, and the school went into lockdown for approximately thirty minutes before resuming normal operations.  The Shelby County Sheriff’s Office School Resource Deputy assigned to the school was on scene at the time of the possible threat, and other Sheriff’s Office personnel quickly responded to assist in the investigation.  The investigation revealed that a student had reported false information that created the concern for the safety of the students.  Deputies have the student in custody and plan to file charges in juvenile court for Falsely Reporting to Law Enforcement.

Sheriff John Samaniego stated “The Sheriff’s Office takes the safety and security of our Shelby County Schools seriously.  I am thankful for the partnerships that we have with Chelsea High School and the Shelby County Board of Education.  Through these partnerships, we were able to quickly assess the potential threat and locate the person involved in creating the false alarm.”
