Update: Belgrade High School Incident

On June 4, 2019, Officers from the Belgrade Police Department, Gallatin County Sheriff’s Office, Montana Highway Patrol and Manhattan Police Department responded to the Belgrade High School for an incident which was precipitated by a threatening video posted to social media.  Detectives are still actively investigating the matter, however incidents such as these are complex in nature and are very time consuming. Four juvenile students have been charged with Felony Intimidation.  One adult male was arrested and charged with Tampering with Physical Evidence, also a felony.  As this matter is still under investigation, we cannot offer further comment at this time.  Belgrade Police Detectives are still working to identify and contact the victims mentioned and/or tagged in the video and will be in contact with them in the coming days.  Anyone with additional information is asked to contact the Belgrade Police Department Detective Division at 406-388-4262. Tips can also be emailed to: generalinfo@belgradepolice.net
