An Oregon teenager has been arrested for allegedly plotting against his school in an attack “forged and inspired by the model of the Columbine shootings.”

Grant Acord, 17, will be charged as an adult with attempted aggravated murder as well as six counts of manufacturing and possessing a destructive device after officials found six bombs hidden in his bedroom, Benton County District Attorney John Haroldson said.

The teen was arrested Thursday night after police were tipped off that he was planning to blow up West Albany High School, the Associated Press reports.

Mr. Haroldson said the youth had “plans, checklists, diagrams, inspirations, sources and a focus on re-creating the model of Columbine, with adjustments that would make it more successful,” KPTV reports.

Investigators found pipe bombs, Molotov cocktails, a Drano bomb and a napalm bomb, Mr. Haroldson said.
