Bartlesville man arrested after making threatening social media post

BARTLESVILLE, Okla. — One man has been arrested after Bartlesville police say they were made aware of a serious threat on Thursday.

Police say it happened when a school resource officer was notified of a threatening post made on social media.

Investigators were called to the school after initially thinking the post came from a student but determined it was not a high school student, said police.

After determining it was not a student, investigators say they then learned of another suspect, named Mathew Allen Conner.

The 20-year-old who lives in Bartlesville was quickly served a search warrant and agreed to go with officers to the police station.

While talking with officers, they say Conner admitted that it was him who made the threatening post on social media.

Police reportedly then arrested Conner and says he now faces a misdemeanor charge of attempting, conspiring or endeavoring to perform act of violence involving serious bodily harm or death threats.

Bartlesville police say they did add extra security at the high school until the suspect was located.
