A 23-year-old man is in jail after the FBI tipped local police saying he'd allegedly made threats toward schools, according to a message sent out to Cache County School District parents Wednesday night.

"Threats were not made toward a specific school or individual," states the email, signed by Superintendent Steve Norton. "However, school resource officers, school administrators, and school staff have been notified and asked to be extra diligent in their security efforts. District personnel have been and will remain in close contact with local police as the investigation continues."

The man was not identified in the alert, which only stated that he is a former student of the district's. He was arrested Monday night by the Smithfield City Police Department.

The district is asking residents to immediately report safety concerns to school administration, police or anonymously through the SafeUT app.

We encourage all members of our community to immediately report any safety concerns to school administration, police, or anonymously through the SafeUT app used by local districts.
