A message (see pic at left) posted on popular game download site Newgrounds has led to the arrest of a 16-year-old British youth.
According to a CBC report, 21-year-old J.P. Neufeld, a college student in Montreal, noticed the teen’s message which indicated that he planned to burn down his school:
"I saw this thread started by this guy. It didn’t seem serious at first. It said that today at 11:30 a.m. GMT I will commit violence and other forms of arson against my school [in Norfolk]. He had posted a picture of a gas can"…
Police were able to track down information about the suspect and school—leading them to an arrest. A 16-year-old male in possession of a knife, matches and canister of flammable liquid was taken into custody outside the school.
