BAGDAD, Ariz. (AP) — Northwestern Arizona authorities say a student who allegedly threated a high school principal is in custody.

Yavapai County Sheriff's officials say 18-year-old Cable Folan is being held on suspicion of interfering or disrupting an educational institution plus threatening and intimidating. He's also accused of possession of marijuana, cultivating marijuana and possession of drug paraphernalia.

Deputies say they were contacted Tuesday by the Bagdad schools superintendent regarding text-message threats allegedly made by Folan.

They say Folan recently was told by Bagdad High administrators that he likely won't graduate this year.

School staff told authorities they believed Folan had access to firearms in his house.

Deputies obtained a search warrant for Folan's home. They reported finding several firearms inside a locked closet along with marijuana, a marijuana plant and drug paraphernalia.
