LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- A teenager from New Jersey has been arrested in connection to social media threats made against New Albany High School last year, according to New Albany Police Chief Todd Bailey. 

New Albany Police say they have a juvenile suspect from Hackensack, N.J., in custody after a four-month investigation. 

The 17-year-old was extradited from New Jersey to Floyd County, Ind. and is being held on charges "relating to threats to New Albany High School via Facebook social media messages."

According to a release, he will be held in 'secure custody' pending his case in Floyd County circuit court. 

Col. Bailey says the department was assisted by the U.S. Secret Service, FBI, prosecutors in Floyd County and New Jersey and Floyd County Juvenile Probation.
