Brewster Student Threatened

Sheriff Kevin J. McConville reports the arrest of a former Brewster High School student for making threats against a current student. On March 23, 2023, at approximately 12:30 pm, the Putnam County Sheriff’s Office began an investigation into threats made on social media targeting a juvenile student at the school. The suspect, who resides outside the county, was quickly identified, located, and issued an appearance ticket for Putnam County Family Court.

Out of an abundance of caution, additional Sheriff’s patrols will be present at all of the Brewster Schools tomorrow. However, it has been determined that the safety of the district's students, faculty, and employees is not in danger.

The Sheriff’s Office appreciates the cooperation of the Brewster Central School District Administration and staff during this investigation.
