 A 13-year-old girl is in custody after someone threatened on social media to send bombs to several Alabama schools.

The Montgomery Advertiser reports the girl was arrested early Wednesday following online threats that appeared Tuesday night.

A release from Montgomery Public Schools says the girl isn’t currently a student. She was charged as a juvenile with making terroristic threats.

Public Safety spokeswoman Martha Earnhardt declined to say which schools were threatened and how authorities identified the teenager, whose name isn’t being released because of her age.

Earnhardt says the teen is being held in the Montgomery County Juvenile Facility.
