LaPorte County Police are looking into comments on social media by a high school student

that created some concern.

Sheriff John Boyd said there were no specific threats contained in the posts....but

he understands why there would be some concern.

Boyd says the New Prairie High School boy was taken out of school as a precaution

pending the outcome of the investigation.

Boyd says talks have been held with the boy and his mother....

and other things are being done to make sure there was no

evil intent behind posted statements.
