(Pleasant Grove-AP) -- There will be extra security today at Pleasant Grove Junior High School because of threatening graffiti found in a girl's restroom.

The violent message scrawled on the bathroom wall says a weapon would be brought to school today, but the threat didn't mention names or references to any teachers.

School officials announced yesterday students are barred from bringing backpacks to school today. Entry to the school will also be limited.

Alpine School District officials found similar graffiti at Mountain Ridge Junior High School last week.

Nothing came of those messages and police say this incident may be a copy cat. But either way, they're taking the incident seriously.
