A teenager from New Jersey is facing charges for making multiple threatening calls to a high school in Florida, authorities say.
The Santa Rosa County Sheriff’s Office says that Brad Parga, 17, was responsible for making multiple hoax calls toward Milton High School in Milton, Florida. He also is accused of making a hoax call about a shooting at a home there.
Authorities say that the calls were made over a span of several months last year. Parga was identified as the suspect and was arrested at his home in Guttenberg. He was extradited to Florida to face the charges.
“When it comes to swatting and making calls like this, we are going to go to the ends of the earth to come get you. If you make a false call … and scare all the kids, we're going to find you,” says Sheriff Bob Johnson. “I don't care if you are in New Jersey, California, whatever. We will bring you back to face charges and that is what is going to happen to Mr. Parga.”
Officials say that once they download all the content off Parga’s phone and computer, they may find additional evidence to press more charges.
