A Utica High School senior faces several terrorism charges related to a social media threat he allegedly made to his school.
Timothy Evans was charged with making a terrorist threat or a false report of terrorism.
A bond of $75,000 has been set.
During a search warrant at Evans’ home, police found various firearms, replicas and ammunition.
“Calling a threat a prank or a joke is not a valid defense,” said Prosecutor Eric Smith. “I urge parents and educators to continue to have these hard conversations with our youth, explaining to them the long-term ramifications of making a threat in this day and age.”
Police applauded the students who brought Evans’ alleged threat forward to the authorities.
