Man Arrested for Threatening Schools

MYRTLE CREEK, Ore. — A Myrtle Creek man was arrested Wednesday morning after threatening to shoot people at Myrtle Creek area schools and others in the area.

The Douglas County Sheriff’s Office says 22-year-old Wesley William Snyder (AKA Miller) made the threats on his Facebook page.

Officers contacted the schools, and then all schools in the South Umpqua School District went into lockdown.

After a brief struggle, Snyder was taken into custody at his home around 10:30 a.m.

The sheriff’s office says Snyder will be lodged in the Douglas County jail for disorderly conduct and resisting arrest.
