Charges Filed in Joplin School Threat Case

JOPLIN, Mo. (AP) – A 21-year-old man has been charged with making terroristic threats that caused the Joplin School District to lock the doors of all its buildings.

The charge was filed Thursday against Keefe D. Rearrick. The Joplin Globe reported that Rearrick was arrested Wednesday in connection with threats made the previous day. Joplin police have not said what threats were made or how they were made.

But they led officials to lock doors and put extra security measures in place from around 12:30 p.m. to 2 p.m. Wednesday.

No attorney is listed for Rearrick in online court records.
