Today a juvenile was arrested for Disorderly Conduct in the First Degree and lodged at the Lincoln County Juvenile Detention Center in Newport. The investigation by the Major Crime Team was able to determine the juvenile, a student of the Eddyville Charter School, acted alone. The arrest has ended the threats made to the school.
Sheriff Curtis Landers says the Lincoln County Sheriff’s Office recognizes the inconvenience created while safety measures were taken by law enforcement during the event and the delay of family re-unification. Sheriff Landers thanks the Eddyville students, parents, and faculty for their patience and understanding.
