Boy arrested in phone threat to school

Updated:

BATON ROUGE, La. (AP) - Authorities say a 10-year-old Iberville Parish boy has been arrested on one count of terrorizing after investigators determined he left a threatening voice mail at St. Joseph's Academy in Baton Rouge over the weekend.

Lt. Don Kelly, a Baton Rouge police spokesman, tells The Advocate (http://bit.ly/Yevi3X ) the boy, who had no known connection to the school, was released to his parents' custody on Monday.

Kelly says the motive for the threat is unclear.

Law enforcement and school officials declined to discuss the nature of the threat, which drew a heavy police presence on Monday.
