LINCOLN, Neb. (KLKN) — Two Omaha teens were arrested Thursday after police say they made threatening statements online.

The Omaha Police Department said it arrested 19-year-old Edwin Genchi-Carmona and a 17-year-old girl on suspicion of terroristic threats.

On Wednesday, the department said it was made aware of a threat regarding Omaha schools made on Instagram.

The post referenced the date “January 25.” An investigation revealed that the threat was not credible.

An 11-year-old and a 12-year-old were also cited on suspicion of disorderly conduct.

The department is still looking for anyone with information regarding the threat.

That information can be reported to the Safe2Help Hotline at 833-980-7233 or online at safe2helpne.org.
