Police investigating internet message at Maumee High School

MAUMEE, OH (WTOL) - Police are on the scene of Maumee High School due to messages on the internet Thursday.

Police say there is a cop at the school every day, but are now looking into a Snapchat message going around the school.

Police say they are talking with cell phone providers to determine the origin of the message.

Maumee police believe the incident could be related to the threat made to Saint John's Jesuit, but they have not yet confirmed that.

Police are working on clearing up the details now. They have not yet determined if the threat is legitimate or just a hoax.

"This is not a game," said Jeff Siebenaler of Maumee Police. "If the person who did this is identified, we will prosecute them to the fullest extent of the law."

Maumee superintendent Todd Cramer said student safety is paramount in situations like this.

"Be careful what you put on social media, because it spreads," said Cramer.

Maumee High School sent all kids home for the day.
