Spokane Police: Alleged abduction was actually an argument


UPDATE: According to Spokane Public Schools, a message was left on a Rogers High School computer, threatening to do harm to the building. Spokane police evacuated the school.

SPS released this message, that read in part, "The nature of these threats led investigators to question their credibility. However, we are obligated to treat each and every case as a real threat to life and property.

Besides being expensive, these threats tie up police and emergency equipment that could be out on other calls assisting the public. The threats are disruptive to learning and are classified as a felony under state and federal laws.

We are working closely with the City of Spokane Police Department and other outside agencies to locate the person or persons responsible for these threats. A $500 reward will be paid for any information that could lead to the arrest of the person or persons responsible." 

They ask that anyone with information contact Crime Check. Their number is 456-2233.

PREVIOUS: Rogers High School was put into lockdown Wednesday afternoon due to a perceived threat to the building.

The lockdown was short-lived and the students were released at 2:30 p.m. according to Spokane Public Schools. 

At this time it is unknown what exactly the threat was, but if we receive any additional information, we will update this story.
