Student arrested for threat against Joseph Lane Middle

February 27, 2018

A student was arrested after making a threat against Joseph Lane Middle School, the fourth such threat in less than two weeks.

Joseph Lane Middle School Principal Bill Bartlett said there is no reason to believe there is an imminent threat in an email to parents.

“We are again asking parents to remind children and teens that making any kind of threat, even in jest, carries serious consequences,” Bartlett said in a statement.

The student was not enrolled in Roseburg Public Schools at the time of the arrest.
