East Helena Superintendent Ron Whitmoyer sent an email to parents about the “inappropriate Snapchat conversation.”

Whitmoyer said the school tightened security on Friday with deputies from the Sheriff’s Office and East Helena Police Department on scene.

He has been released to the custody of his parents.

The juvenile is scheduled to be back in court on November 8th.
