Security stepped up at Sandia High School after social media threat

Some Albuquerque students, teachers and parents will see extra security at a school in the Northeast Heights.

Police are on standby after rumors of a threat started circulating on social media.

KOB has gotten several questions from viewers about a Snapchat message they say their kids received.

The Snapchat shows a picture of a warning message written on a wall. Students say it was at Sandia High School.

The message says there are six bombs around the school, and tells people not to go to school today, October 25th.

Albuquerque Public Schools has tweeted that they are aware of the threat. They say APS police have been investigating and the threat does not appear to be credible, but they will step up security today.

There’s no word yet on where authorities believe the message came from, or if that person will face charges.

KOB.com will update this story as it develops
