ALAMANCE COUNTY, NC (WFMY) - The Alamance County Sheriff's Office has arrested a second person for making threatening statements towards Alamance-Burlington Schools.
Nasia Kawan Kimber-McAdoo of Burlington was charged with one count of Making a False Report Concerning Mass Violence on Educational Property, a Felony.
The sheriff's office says Kimber-McAdoo, 17, posted a video on Snapchat that included a threat to 'blow up Eastern High School,' referencing Eastern Alamance High. Investigators discovered the video Wednesday afternoon. Alamance-Burlington Schools confirm Kimber-McAdoo is a senior at Cummings High.
Authorities believe Kimber-McAdoo's threats weren't related to the threats made by Kelvin Slade. Slade, an Eastern Alamance student, was also arrested for making threats this week. Authorities found no relationship between them.
Although the Sheriff knows these are still young men, he says he can't just let them slide.
"We have to take every single threat seriously. Because, if we don't and something does happen -- the blood of the kids is on my back," said Sheriff Terry Johnson.
Kimber-McAdoo, 17, was released from custody after a $25,000 secured bond was posted. It was the second such arrest in as many days for social media threats against Alamance high schools.
At the end of the day, the Sheriff says it's sad all these kids are ruining their lives.
"We have got to get across to the young people of this county -- and anybody else that is making these as jokes -- this is not a joke. I am asking our young people, my goodness you are ruining your lives by doing this," said Johnson.
