Why/How:
Deputies have arrested a St. Petersburg woman after she posted school threats on her personal Snapchat account.
   
According to deputies, a citizen contacted the Sheriff’s Office at about 11:10 p.m. on December 2, 2018, regarding a concerning photograph on a personal Snapchat account.

Deputies say the complainant saw a photograph of a male subject in a black tactical vest pointing a black handgun at the camera with a caption at the bottom that said “don’t come to school tomorrow.” The photograph was posted on a personal Snapchat account that was known to the complainant.

Deputies determined the photograph was posted on the Snapchat account of 18-year-old Hanlin Majewski.

Deputies made contact with Majewski at her residence located at 6710 Cardinal Drive South, in St. Petersburg.
 
Majewski admitted to deputies that she took the photograph on her phone earlier that evening and typed the caption “don’t come to school tomorrow” before posting it on her Snapchat account. Majewski said that the photograph was a picture of her boyfriend’s 17-year-old brother holding a fake gun.
 
Majewski told deputies she meant no harm by posting the image.

Through the course of the investigation, deputies identified the 17-year-old boy pictured in the photograph.
 
Deputies made contact with the boy’s parents and recovered a black tactical vest and a black airsoft BB gun that was depicted in the photograph.

Deputies learned that the 17-year-old boy was playing with the airsoft BB gun just prior to Majewski taking his photograph.
 
The parents informed deputies that the 17-year-old boy did not have access to any weapons or firearms.
 
Deputies arrested Majewski and transported her to the Pinellas County Jail without incident.

Majewski was charged with one count of Threatening Communications or Threats of Mass Shootings.

Deputies say Majewski was a student at Gibbs High School until last school year. Currently she is a student at Florida Virtual School. The 17-year-old boy is home schooled. Neither attend Pinellas County Schools.
   
The investigation continues.
