GREENFIELD - A student has been brought into custody after allegedly making a bomb threat involving Greenfield High School.

Police increased their presence at the school on Wednesday after the threat.

According to Police Chief Brad Wentlandt, the threat came on the 3200 block of West Mangold Avenue on Tuesday.

Officers said they found graffiti on a garage that said "Greenfield High School blown up Dec. 5-8."

School officials and police investigated the threat and, according to Wentlandt, "the graffiti was not a credible threat to the school community."

However, the threat made the rounds on social media.

"In response to concerns expressed by parents because of these social media rumors, the police department tasked uniformed officers to provide a visible presence at the school today," said Wentlandt in a statement.

He also explained that investigators were looking into who made the graffiti.
