Fargo police probe Facebook threat against Northwood

NORTHWOOD, N.D. — Police are investigating threats made on a Fargo man’s Facebook page that triggered a lockdown at a Northwood nursing home Wednesday.

Lt. Joel Vettel of the Fargo Police Department said part of the investigation included who posted the threats on Troy Larson’s Facebook account.

Authorities said Wednesday the comments were threats against the school.

Sue Holweger, who identified herself as Larson’s aunt, said he was using Facebook from a computer at the Fargo Public Library and forgot to log out when he left. Then someone posted the threats on his page.

No one has been arrested, Vettel said.
