Chief Terrence Green is announcing the arrest of Dylan Silber, age 23 of Columbia, after he was found on the campus of River Bluff High School on Corley Mill Road on Thursday, December 8, 2022.
Multiple students told School Resource Officers that a man had approached them asking about a student who attends the high school and had talked to some of them about drugs. The man was seen on security cameras outside and inside the school, and he was identified by school staff as a former student who had attended River Bluff High School in the past.
When interviewed, Dylan Silber told officers that he came to the school campus looking for a friend he knew from social media. He told officers that he purposely dressed in a River Bluff High School shirt, had headphones around his neck, and wore a backpack to look like he was a student. He also admitted to having discussions about drugs with students.
Dylan Silber was arrested for Disturbing Schools and transported to the Lexington County Detention Center and he will be seen at Lexington County Bond Court this morning.
