Slocomb Terrorist Threat

Authorities are investigating a case where a Slocomb man allegedly threatened to kill administrators, teachers and students.

19-year-old Israel Perales reportedly discussed his plans in an internet chat room.

Police arrested him at his Slocomb home.

Now he is facing a charge of making terrorist threats.

Authorities say Perales had plans to kill Principal Jerry Edgar along with several other teachers and students.

Edgar says he doesn't recall Perales, that's because the suspect reportedly dropped out of Slocomb High School in the 8th-grade.

Authorities say Geneva County residents saw the threats on the internet.

Names were listed and authorities say Perales talked about using explosives to blow-up the school.

Perales has been released from the Geneva County Jail on a 20-thousand dollars bond. Additional charges may be filed in the case.
