Constable Pct. 1 investigating threat at Willis High School
WILLIS, TX -- On December 17, 2021, the Montgomery County Precinct 1 Constable’s Office along with our community partners responded to a threat at Willis High School. The threat was made on social media and due to the serious nature of the threat, several urgent requests for information were made to internet providers. This process revealed a telephone phone number linked to a student at Willis High School. Investigators contacted the parents and the device was surrendered to our office.

Constable Cash wishes to thank all of our area partners (Willis ISD, the Texas Department of Public Safety-Highway Patrol, the Montgomery County District Attorney’s Office, and the Montgomery County Sheriff’s Department) for their response and assistance with this situation.
Constable Cash and Superintendent Dr. Harkrider urge parents to hold discussions with their children and explain the serious, long-term consequences of these actions.
