Girl Taken into Custody Following Onaway School Threat

A girl is in custody after the FBI contacted the Presque Isle Sheriff’s Department about a threat aimed at Onaway Area Community Schools.

Onaway Schools went into a “shelter in place” mode Tuesday as law enforcement searched the building.

Presque Isle Sheriff’s Department tells us during this time a underage female suspect, who is not a student at the school, and her father were questioned.

She has since been taken into custody.

The department is still investigating, but say there is no longer a threat to area school.
