This morning, the Myrtle Creek Police Department was made aware of threats posted on a Facebook page belonging to Wesley Snyder, age 22 of Myrtle Creek. The threats were of a serious nature and included general threats of shooting people in the Myrtle Creek area and shooting people at Myrtle Creek area schools.

Officers notified local schools which prompted a lock-down of all schools in the South Umpqua School District. Local police and Sheriff's deputies beefed up patrols to the area schools.

At about 1030 hours this morning, Snyder was contacted at his home, and after a brief struggle, he was taken into custody. Snyder will be booked into the county jail on Disorderly Conduct and Resisting Arrest charges.

A photograph will be available later on our inmate website,
