Graffiti found in a bathroom Monday at Susquehannock High School threatened three males, according to the Southern Regional Police Department.

The Southern York County School District is cooperating in a full investigation with police, according to a release from the department.

In a letter to parents, superintendent Thomas Hensley said a teacher found the graffiti on a bathroom partition.

"Because the safety of our children and staff is our highest priority, we are taking this incident seriously and sharing the information with our parents and guardians," Hensley said in the department's release.

The department will increase security at the high school and other campuses during the investigation, police said.

While the incident is likely a hoax, the department will investigate to find the threat's origin, said police chief James Boddington in the release.

The Southern Regional Police Department has a confidential tip line on its website, www.srpd.us. Police may also be contacted at 717-235-3944 or 717-840-2971.
