SAN DIMAS, Calif. (AP) - The Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department says it has found a cyberbully who sent Instagram death threats to a girl at a suburban school.

A sheriff’s statement Monday says the person has been detained and the case will be submitted to the juvenile court for “charges to follow.”

No further details were released on the suspect.

Students notified officials at Lone Hill Middle School in San Dimas early last week about the threats.

One anonymous posting warned the student: “This is your last week. Time’s up!!”

Another had a photo of the girl with the caption: “That smile! I can’t wait until it’s just blood and tears!”

The girl was sent home from school until it was deemed safe.

Many students at the school wore blue, the threatened student’s favorite color, in her honor while she was out.
