Irwin Co. schools on alert due to threats

Posted: Updated:
IRWINVILLE, GA (WALB) -

Law enforcers took extra precautions at schools in Irwin County Friday after social media posts about a possible threat.

There were discussions on Facebook Thursday night about someone placing something dangerous in one of the schools.

Police conducted a walk-thrus at schools in the county and patrolled hallways Friday.

Some parents checked out their children early, though administrators said that's not uncommon as some families begin their Christmas travel.
