FORT MITCHELL, Ky. — Authorities arrested a Fort Wright man after he made threats toward Beechwood Independent Schools, Fort Mitchell police said.

Thomas Lommel, 19, is accused of sending a threat via Facebook Messenger to the district’s Facebook page, police said. Authorities arrested Lommel at his home Friday morning.

“No weapons were located … and there is no evidence that Mr. Lommel had the means to carry out his threat or that he took any steps to carry out his threat,” police said.

The threat was made while Beechwood was on fall break, so the impact on the school was limited, police said. Police said there are no concerns for safety.

Lommel faces a terroristic threatening charge. He is being held in the Kenton County Jail.
