New Albany: Texts to teen investigated

The New Albany Police Department and its school resource officer, Ryan Southers, are investigating telephone harassment reported by a 13-year-old girl who attends New Albany Middle School, 6600 E. Dublin-Granville Road.

The student said she received four threatening texts from another student. One text read, "I am going to kill you," the police report said.

The student contacted New Albany Middle School staff members, who called Southers, the report said.

The police department has copies of the texts but no suspect was listed on the report and no charges have been filed. The incident is under investigation.

In other recent incident reports from the New Albany Police Department:

* Police are investigating a counterfeit $10 bill found by a cashier in the lunchroom at Discover Financial Services, 6500 New Albany Rd E.

The money was used by an employee to pay for lunch, according to the police report.

The cashier used a counterfeit marker to test the bill's legitimacy and determined it was suspicious, the police report said.

Police confirmed the bill was counterfeit. It was confiscated and impounded, the report said.

The person who used the bill said he had taken money out of an ATM and had eaten at a fast-food restaurant earlier and likely was given the bill in change.
