School Threat Suspect Appears In Juvenile Court

NEBRASKA CITY – A Nebraska City teenager, who is accused of making threats against Nebraska City Public Schools that led to a school lock down and early dismissal on April 26, has made a court appearance this week.

The teen was initially authorized for the Sarpy County Juvenile Detention Center, but can be released to her mother under a “written safety plan,” that includes electronic monitoring.

The teen is accused of making multiple calls on a cell phone. She is charged with felony terroristic threats and disturbing the peace of Nebraska City schools.

Also arrested during the school lockdown on April 26 was a Nebraska City woman who is accused of making threats against employees of Benefiel Truck Repair and Towing, but is not linked to the school threats.

Melisa Arnold, 45, is scheduled for preliminary hearing on May 14 on a charge of terroristic threats.
