Two Juveniles Charged Over Alleged Threats at GT-RA Schools

Two juveniles face felony charges after allegedly making threats against two small area school districts late last week.

According to Palo Alto County Sheriff John King, a 16-year-old suspect has been charged with a felony for an alleged threat at Ruthven-Ayrshire Community Schools on Friday.

A threatening social media post on Saturday against the Graettinger-Terril School District was investigated by federal, state, and local authorities. A juvenile located by Eagle Grove Police on Sunday has been charged with making threats of terrorism.

The Ruthven-Ayrshire and Graettinger-Terril school districts have an athletics-sharing arrangement. One superintendent oversees both districts.
