Swansea Police: No Threat at Our Case Schools
Swansea Police Chief Marc Haslam released a statement about a video circulating online regarding a threat to a school in New York with a similar name to two schools in Swansea, and said there is no immediate threat here.
According to Haslam, Swansea Police “received numerous calls this afternoon reporting a video circulating online involving an individual holding what appears to be a gun and making threats to a school known as the Case Middle School.”
Haslam said Swansea Police “immediately launched an investigation” and determined the video is alluding to Case Middle School, located in Watertown, New York. The Case schools in Swansea are the Joseph Case Joseph Case Junior High School and the Joseph Case High School.
Haslam said Swansea Police contacted the Watertown, New York Police, and that WPD confirmed it was aware of the video and actively investigating.
He said there is no immediate threat to either Swansea school, but that out of an abundance of caution, there will be an increased police presence at all Swansea Public Schools on Monday.
