Police investigate threat made at Burroughs High

Burbank police investigated a threat made by a John Burroughs High School student Wednesday afternoon after the student – who has not been identified – alluded to a teacher that the next day could hold potential danger.

“The student said something inappropriate in class about it being a bad day – tomorrow being a bad day,” said Supt. Jan Britz, adding the student was taken into custody.

School administrators reported the threat to police before the end of the school day, and officers found the student had neither the intention nor means to carry out the threat.

Police will patrol the campus Thursday and possibly Friday, Britz said. In an earlier statement, she said that all threats are taken seriously and will be reported to police.
