Investigators determined the social media threats against Chino Hills High School students were from a 'spoofed' acct

DATE/TIME: March 21, 2019

INCIDENT: PC 653.2 - Cyber Threats

LOCATION: Chino Hills High School

SUSPECT(S): Unknown

VICTIM(S): Several Juvenile Students

SUMMARY:
On March 21, 2019, deputies and detectives from the Chino Hills Police Department were notified of a threatening message posted on social media involving students from Chino Hills High School.
Investigators determined the message was posted from a fraudulently created “spoofed” account. The account used the name and photograph of a Chino Hills High School student. The message was made to appear as if the threat came from the student. An extensive investigation showed the student was not involved in creating the account or posting the message.

After learning about the message and fraudulent account, the social media outlet was contacted, and the account was immediately removed.

Investigators believe the threat was not credible and are continuing to determine its origin.

Anyone with information regarding this incident is urged to contact Detective Glozer at the Chino Hills Police/Sheriff’s Station at (909) 364-2000. Callers wishing to remain anonymous are urged to call the We-Tip Hotline at 1-800-78-CRIME (27463) or you may leave information on the We-Tip Hotline at www.wetip.com
