UPDATE: Moody police say one person has been taken into custody after an investigation into an alleged school threat.

“As part of our investigation that resulted in precautionary measures being taken at our schools this morning, an individual has been taken into custody,” the Moody Police Department shared in a statement. “It is our belief that this will resolve the concern that was brought to our attention. We will always ensure that we do everything possible to keep Moody safe.”


The Moody Police Department says the city school is on “heightened alert” Friday as it investigates a possible threat.

Details about the alleged threat weren’t released. Moody PD shared this statement on social media late Friday morning:

“The safety of our citizens is always our number one priority. To that end, we received information late last night that led us to place our school system on heightened alert this morning. This was done out of an abundance of caution, and there is no reason to believe that a threat currently exists to any of our students or anyone else. The investigation is ongoing, and as always, we continue to strive to preserve the integrity of our investigations while protecting the public.”
