    Devin Dwayne Saxon, 17, of Holly was charged Tuesday, May 1 with false report or threat of terrorism, a 20-year felony, according to Holly Police Chief Elena Danishevskaya. Saxon is suspected of making threats against Holly Middle School over the weekend. Saxon was arraigned at Oakland County’s 52-2 District Court in Clarkston and a $25,000 cash bond was set. He is banned from all Holly schools’ property.

    Saxon has been accused of sending threatening messages of what he might do to people at Holly Middle School on Monday, April 30. On Saturday, April 28, Holly police received information about the teen allegedly sending threatening messages. Police learned that he also warned his friends who go to the middle school not to go to school on Monday because he did not want them to get hurt.

    Danishevskaya said officers developed information that Saxon had threatened to shoot up a school in the past and that he had the means to do so, at that time. It was believed that he threatened to do the same thing at Holly Middle School. Police located and took Saxon into custody on Sunday.

 Holly Area Schools Superintendent Kent Barnes was made aware of the threat and that the suspect was located and in custody. On Monday, Holly police were present at the middle school just to ensure everyone was safe and secure, according to Danishevskaya.

 The chief wants to remind all parents to speak with their children and if they hear of any threats against the school or an individual, they are to report it to authorities immediately.
