Officers there found a 14-year-old boy at the home that came up connected to the message. They also found two rifles that belonged to the boy's mother. The teen told police that he did post the threat, the Times reported.
Port Huron police Capt. Joseph Platzer told the paper that the boy's threat was against his middle school. The boy was taken to a juvenile detention center and charged with making a false report of a threat of terrorism. That's a felony that can carry a sentence of up to four years in jail, the Times reported.
Edelman plans on thanking the person who alerted him. Moen has reached out on the wide receiver's behalf, but the good Samaritan has not responded, the Times reported.
“We’re going to send him something, a care package, just for his work. He’s the real hero,” Edelman told the Times.
