18-year-old Merritt male charged following threat to Merritt Secondary School.
Merritt RCMP Cst Tracy Dunsmore says Jonathan Trosky, who is not a student at the school, has been formally charged for his alleged role in the incident over the weekend.
"He's been officially charged with one count of uttering threats, on account of the threat made on social media. We are still investigating, and following up with search warrants, interviews and on social media."
The exact nature of the threat is still not being made public, but Dunsmore continues to stress that no students at the school are at risk.
Trotsky has been in custody since his arrest on Saturday, and has a bail hearing scheduled for tomorrow in Kamloops.
