Two students at Savanna High School in Anaheim, Calif. were arrested for plotting to detonate explosives and shoot people at school Thursday, the last day of the year, CBS LA reports.
School administrators contacted the Anaheim police after learning of threats the two juniors posted on social media. The police worked with the administrators to identify the students and arrested them before classes began.
“Arrests were made shortly after the threats were made, so we really lucked out,” said Pat Karlak with the Anaheim Union High School District.
Searches of the teens’ homes produced no weapons or explosives, but police did find detailed plans of the plot and maps of the Savanna High School campus.
Police are investigating the possibility that other students may have been “peripherally involved” but they claim the primary suspects are in custody.
The unnamed students are being held on suspicion of making criminal threats and will be booked at Orange County Juvenile Hall.
No further information about the teens has been released.
