Greene, Iowa – A man from Greene was arrested on Wednesday, charged with making a threat of terrorism against the North Butler Jr & Sr. High School in Greene.

The Butler County Sheriff’s Office reports 19-year-old Andrew Corwin was arrested Wednesday after allegedly making a threat to the school.

Law enforcement alerted the district about a potential threat Wednesday morning prompting a 45-minute lockdown at the North Butler Junior/Senior High School.

Butler County Sheriff Jason Johnson says Corwin was apprehended soon after the investigation began. Johnson says Corwin was not found at the school, nor did the investigation conclude that he had been at or near the school.

Corwin faces a Class D Felony punishable by up to five years in prison.
