Fairfax Teen Again Charged with School Threats

The Fairfax teen who was charged last year with making threats against Farmwell Middle School is back behind bars after allegedly making bomb threats targeting two other schools.

Shane D. Lucas, 18, was arrested Tuesday by the Fairfax County Police Department following the investigation of May 19 bomb threats sent by email to Dominion High School in Sterling and a Fairfax County school.

According to a Sheriff’s Office, report, Lucas was identified as the suspect in the Dominion High School threat during the May 19 investigation, but he was not immediately charged pending a mental health evaluation. 

Lucas previously was charged with making threats of bodily injury or death, a class 6 felony, after a Dec. 7, 2021, social media post that included a photo of a firearm and threatening statements toward Farmwell Station Middle School. Lucas is a former student at Farmwell.

In April, he was granted a deferred finding in Circuit Court, under which the charge would be reduced to a misdemeanor if eight conditions were met over the following 12 months. 

The agreement proposed by Commonwealth’s Attorney Buta Biberaj and Public Defender Adam Pouilliard and accepted by Judge Douglas L. Fleming Jr., includes requirements that Lucas be under supervised probation, stay at least 1,000 feet away from any school, enter an inpatient mental health program if recommended and follow a home safety plan if not, and be prohibited from purchasing or possessing weapons.  

The agreement also prohibits Lucas from accessing social media sites except under direct supervision of a parent or guardian or while attending school.

A violation of the terms could result in a reinstatement of the felony charge, which carries a maximum sentence of 12 months in jail and a $2,500 fine.

That case was set for review in April 2023.

Lucas is being held in Fairfax County. A preliminary hearing in Fairfax County General District Court is scheduled July 26.

    Buta Biberaj has never met a violent criminal she didn’t want to bestow gifts upon.
    Not once, ever.
    She had her chance to punish this guy. To take away his ability to make more threats of violence.
    What did she do?
    Let him walk away. Not even a slap on the wrist.
    Criminals may not be smart. But they know that if they do get caught and don’t get punished, then there’s no reason to stop doing what they’re doing.

    Buta is wrong for Loudoun. She’s needlessly endangered children. She need to go.

    I wonder why this guy thought he could get away with this again? Buta Biberaj should put down the twitter and call her office. Especially after watching her San Francisco Comrade overwhelmingly removed from office last night.

    I’m sure the orange shirts, along with Wexton and Phyllis, will all be holding a rally outside the CA’s office this evening, right? Wait. Never mind.

    Very sad to read about this young man. Apparently, he’s extremely troubled. I hope he gets the services he needs. Meanwhile, he should remain incarcerated, for everyone’s safety. He doesn’t belong in general society. On a more positive note, Happy Pride Month Loudoun!

    Hey Buta, you should have locked the punk up the first time, think of how scared the kids and teachers felt when they were threatened a SECOND time. Let’s make a deal

    We can thank these elected Democrats for yet another criminal failure.

    Add this to the list of reasons to boot Buta from office.

    Restorative Justice needs to be abolished. It is the democrats method of sending bad children back into the classroom without consequences. Teachers need R E S P E C T again. The time has come to push for school vouchers. International recruitment of teachers needs to be halted and invite the American Teachers that left our public schools back and apologize to them. Each and every one deserves more. If you pay a plumber a $150 an hour, teachers deserve the same hourly pay. They don’t deserve YOUR children being disrespectful or violent to them. Nor do the good students deserve to be exposed to these volatile students. CRT, Gender X and all the other communistic lessons need to be halted as well.
