. The juveniles have been transported to The Department of Juvenile Justice.
On October 1st, 2019 at around 8:08 pm, Police went to 1000 SW Darwin Boulevard, Port St. Lucie (Treasure Coast High School) for reports of a school threat /graffiti referencing a bomb. Police met with School Security. They informed police of a photo being dispersed through “Snap Chat.” The photos were of writing on school property. They included three school poles/ pillars- vandalized and in the bus loading and unloading zones. The writing was in red ink and read as follows: “Bombing School 10.3.19”, “suck my dick bitch and die” with an X circled, and “You gonna die”.
The school staff provided police with the surveillance video which revealed the identity /involvement of the juveniles. The video shows Cheyenne Hinchcliff walking up to each pole/pillar and writing on it and Trinity Bormet with Cheyenne Hinchcliff when the incident occurred.
Police located Cheyenne Hinchcliff and Trinity Bormet at McDonalds on SW Darwin Blvd, PSL. this morning. They transported them to the Port St. Lucie Police Department for interviews. During the interview, detectives learned the girls had planned to “skip school” today (10/2/19), which is believed to be the purpose/ benefit of writing the threat.
Due to the juvenile’s writing about an act of terrorism (a bomb) which was in an area to be viewed by others and the writing was seen and shared by students causing concern, both juveniles were arrested. They were charged with written threats to kill, do bodily injury, or conduct a mass shooting or and act of terrorism and transported without incident to The Detention of Juvenile Justice, Fort Pierce.
