Ventura County School Closed, Man Arrested Over Possible Threat

A 74 year old man has been arrested for a threat against a school in Ventura County which authorities seriously enough that they cancelled all school activities for a day.

Ventura County Sheriff’s detectives say a potential threat against Oak Park High School was posted on a Facebook page Tuesday. As a precaution, the Oak Park Unified School District cancelled all school activities on Wednesday.

Detectives got an arrest warrant for Morton Green of Agoura Hills. They learned he was in Laughlin, Nevada. Las Vegas Police arrested Green, and authorities are now in the process of extraditing him back to California.

Investigators think Green posted the threat because he believed staff members at the school were responsible for some of his personal problems.
