Woman is accused of threatening a school in October

A Coon Rapids woman has been accused in Anoka County District Court of making a threat against Adams Elementary School via Facebook.

Anastacia Mae Ryan, 36, is scheduled to go on trial March 17, 2014 on two felony terroristic threats charges.

The court set the trial date at a hearing Oct. 22.

Ryan remains free on her own recognizance, but she is to have no contact with the school, nor post anything on Facebook or Twitter.

The late morning of Sept. 20, Coon Rapids Police and the Anoka County Sheriff’s Office were notified by Adams Elementary School staff of a threat made to the school on Facebook.

According to the complaint, Ryan, a student’s parent, had made a recent posting, stating that because “the kids at her new school told her she ugly,” in a week, Ryan was going to blow up the school and “put a special timer” for the “dirty pigs watching my page.”

School officials were extremely concerned for the safety of the students at the school, the complaint states.

In a post-Miranda statement, Ryan allegedly admitted making the Facebook post and said she did so to get back at her mother with whom she has a very strained relationship.

Ryan’s mother, when interviewed by detectives, was concerned about her daughter’s comments and alleged she was not sure what Ryan was capable of doing.
