ALBION, N.Y. — There will be an increased police presence Monday at Albion Central School after a violent threat was made on Facebook.
Albion Police and FBI officials deemed the threat not credible.
Albion Police said it received help Sunday from the FBI, investigating a post from a student that contained a threat toward an unspecified school. The FBI said someone in Croatia had taken over the student's Facebook account through a malware attack on a phone, before making that threat.
Just to be safe, Albion Police said there will be an increased presence when students report to class Monday morning.
In the meantime, Albion Police said it is working with Facebook and with the Albion student whose account was hacked to delete the threatening post.
Officials also said all residents should monitor their social media accounts for unwarranted or suspicious activity, and they added that people should change their passwords on a routine basis.
