Effingham County deputies arrested Darious Goldwire, 20, on Monday evening and charged him with terroristic threats and acts, a felony. He was transported to Effingham County Jail.
Effingham County Sheriff’s Office reports the arrest came after an investigation into a threat made against students at Effingham High School on Jan. 15. Investigators have been working since that date to determine who was behind the threats.
In a statement from the sheriff’s office, officials wrote: “This very serious matter has become a joke to students and will often result in copycat threats in the same week. The havoc it causes for law enforcement and parents is inexcusable.”
