CARTERSVILLE, Ga. (FOX 5 Atlanta) - New details in the threat that led to four Cartersville City Schools being placed on lockdown last Thursday.
The FBI helped police track down the person accused of causing the panic. It turns out, that juvenile has no direct ties to Cartersville and is actually from Riverdale.
The suspect is facing similar charges in other jurisdictions.
On Thursday as a precaution, law enforcement from several agencies responded to the schools.
A letter from the Cartersville School System Superintendent Dr. Marc Feuerbach to all parents said, at the time, the school system "did not know the validity of the threat ... but, it was taken very seriously."
The school system also says the safety of its staff and students was never compromised.
In an email to FOX 5 News, Cartersville police said the safety measures were put in place because of a "hoax call" that was "traced to an individual who has no ties to the city of Cartersville."
Investigators have not identified the individual.
