GROVETOWN, Ga. (WRDW/WAGT) -- Grovetown Public Safety officers have arrested someone after a threat was made against a school.

According to officials with the Columbia County Board of Education, officers responded to a threat made by an adult from a home near a Grovetown school on Wednesday.

All schools surrounding the high school were placed on a "soft lockdown", meaning no one could enter or exit, but all other school operations remained normal.

The person who officers believe made the call was found in a home in the Grove Landing subdivision.

Sheryll Sidell was taken into custody and charged with one count of terroristic threats and acts.
