A 19-year-old Lakeville man is under arrest after online threats were made against Apponequet Regional High School.

Lakeville Police say a concerned parent told School Resource Officer Ryan Maltais about the threat which was posted anonymously to the social media site Yik Yak.

After further investigation Bryan Kent was arrested at around 9:30 p.m. Wednesday and charged with Threatening to Use a Deadly Weapon at a School or Public Building.

It was determined that Kent didn't have the means to carry out the threat and it is believed that students and faculty are not in danger.

There will be an extra police presence at the school on Thursday.

Kent was scheduled to be arraigned Thursday in Wareham District Court
