NEW BERLIN – A Unadilla Valley student was charged with making a terror threat on Tuesday after police allegedly received an audio recording of the student making a threat of violence against a school.

Unadilla Valley (UV) Central School District Director of Curriculum and Instruction/Secondary Principal Brenton Taylor said one of their students was charged after two Otselic Valley students turned in a voicemail that contained a threat of violence against a school from the student.

The 14-year-old Unadilla Valley student is charged with making a terror threat, a class D felony, after an investigation by the Town of New Berlin Police Department and the New York State Police Department.

Taylor said the student who allegedly made the threat was located at Unadilla Valley during the lockdown after the threat was discovered, but a search of the student and their locker revealed no weapons or contraband.

“Otselic Valley Central School District went on a lockout after one of their students reported an audio recording of a threatened act of violence against a school allegedly made by a Unadilla Valley Central School District student,” said Taylor.

He said Otselic Valley representatives warned UV officials of the threat around 11 a.m. and by 11:16 a.m., Unadilla Valley was in a lockdown. He said approximately half an hour later the student who allegedly made the threat had been located, the student's locker was searched, and law enforcement advised that the school was safe.
