Joint Statement for Johnstown Police Department and Weld RE-5J School District

The Johnstown Police Department and Weld RE-5J School District offer the following joint statement:


Since Tuesday December 4, 2018, several threats to Weld RE-5J schools have been reported through Safe2Tell. We can now report that a juvenile female has been arrested. She is in custody and being charged with False Report of Explosive Devices (18-8-110, Felony 6) and Interference with an Educational Institution (18-9-109, Misdemeanor 1). Together, we are continuing to follow several other active leads related to the sources of the threats this week and other arrests are possible.



We wish to communicate that law enforcement and the school district have a zero-tolerance policy when it comes to false reporting. We have reason to believe that several of the threats we have investigated this week have been hoax threats. These threats are taken very seriously. They are not a joke and can have devastating consequences.


Issuing a false threat is a federal crime (threatening interstate communications). Those who post or send these threats can receive up to five years in federal prison. In our community, people who make hoax threats will be prosecuted to the full extent of the law.


In addition to consequences for individuals who issue threats, there is also a significant societal cost. Law enforcement agencies have limited resources and responding to hoax threats diverts officers and costs taxpayers. The threats also cause severe emotional distress to students, school personnel, and parents.


If you have any information about the threats that were made over the course of this week, please contact Johnstown Police Department Commander Sanchez at 970-587-5555 or asanchez@johnstownpolice.org. We will release more information as it becomes available.
