Police in Los Banos arrested a 15-year-old in connection to an apparent threat made to a school, the Police Department said Monday. 

On Sunday, the Police Department received several reports of a suspicious, threatening photo online displaying a firearm and referencing a school on a social media site.

Police, along with the Los Banos School District, identified a 15-year-old Los Banos High School student as the author of the post, police said.

The teen was contacted at his residence and placed under arrest on charges of making criminal threats.

The firearm was located and identified as belonging to the juvenile’s parent, police said.

Police said the juvenile has been cooperative, and it’s believed the photo was posted as a joke.
