One of the two 17-year-old seniors arrested last week for allegedly messaging threatening tweets against Mercedes High School is out on bond.
Jose Cano, of Mercedes, was released this morning from the Hidalgo County Jail after posting a $10,000 bond. The second student, Roen Lerma, remains behind bars on a $250,000 bond.
The pair were arrested Wednesday, Jan. 13, after authorities notified the high school the students had posted threatening tweets on Twitter.
Lerma responded to Cano’s Twitter message wishing for another 9/11 attack.
Lerma proceeded in saying on Twitter that Cano should come by the school and shoot it up.
Cano did not respond to Lerma’s message but did hit the like button.
Hidalgo County District Attorney Ricardo Rodriguez said the allegations are a serious matter.
