A 17-year-old is under arrest after making threats online involving the Alexandria Senior High School prom. Rapides Parish Lt. Tommy Carnline says investigators believed an incident could take place at the prom and discovered a fake internet social media account. Carline says evidence found led them to arrest Adrian Ray of Alexandria at his home.
“Evidence that we got from the internet and from the home implicated the subject in the crimes of which he was arrested, which was terrorizing, stalking, and obstruction of justice.”
The prom was held on Saturday night. Carnline says Ray is currently being held in the Rapides Parish Detention Center on a $21,000 bond. He says anytime they have threats of this kind, they take them very seriously.
“They were basically veiled threats but they eluded to the fact that something was going to happen at the prom. The Ray subject is a senior at the Alexandria Senior High School.”
Authorities believe Ray is the only person involved with the threats. Carnline says Ray is charged with Terrorizing, Stalking, and Obstruction of Justice.
“It is still an ongoing investigation but there is enough evidence there for us to charge him with those charges.”
