Huron County OPP are warning people to think about what they post on social media after a 14-year-old boy was charged with uttering threats.

Police say they were contacted Thursday morning about a “concerning threat” posted on a popular social media platform.

Officers were then requested at a Huron County high school in order to investigate.

Shortly after the post was discovered, police say the teenage student was located at the school and taken into custody without incident.
