BPD – Bakersfield Police Department

BAKERSFIELD, Calif. (KGET) — Police on Monday were investigating an apparent copycat threat at Warren Junior High in which the same picture used in a threat against another school in late September was posted.

Parents have been notified of the threat through the ParentSquare app, police said, and the school is open and operating under its regular schedule.

Gerrie Kincaid, assistant superintendent of educational services at Panama-Buena Vista Union School District, said administrators don’t believe the threat is credible but have passed information along to police for investigation.

She said the district became aware of the post Sunday evening.

Police said the threat used the same image from a post against Thompson Junior High that included pictures of guns. The Thompson threat was determined to not be credible.
