Merritt RCMP making an arrest, after threat to Merritt Secondary School.

Cst Tracy Dunsmore confirms that a male was taken into custody Saturday evening, for what is only being described at this time as a threat to the high school.

"We had a report over the weekend about some threats made over social media to a local school. We were able to investigate immediately, and take the male into custody within hours of the threat being made. At this point we are continuing our investigation, and the male will remain in custody until he can appear before a judge."

RCMP officers were at the school this morning to ensure the threat was neutralized.

Dunsmore says the male in custody has yet to be charged, but will make his first appearance in court in Kamloops tomorrow.
