The NBPD conducted the investigation after it received a report last week about the threats made on the New Brunswick Public School District's Instagram page.

The teen was charged with juvenile delinquency and, if tried as an adult, would be charged with biased intimidations, false public alarm and terroristic threats.

During a hearing at Family Court earlier this week, the judge ruled that the teenager must remain in custody at the Middlesex County Juvenile Detention Center, according to the article.
