DANBURY, Conn. (AP) - Two teenagers have been arrested after police say they threatened to harm a student and everyone else at Danbury High School.

The teens, ages 16 and 17, told police it was only a prank, but Danbury officials say they have zero tolerance when it comes to school threats. Both were charged Monday with threatening and conspiracy and taken to a juvenile detention center.

Authorities withheld the teens’ names under juvenile offender laws. Police say the youths are from Danbury, but wouldn’t say if they are Danbury High School students.

Police say the investigation began with a reported threat to a Danbury High School student. Authorities say one of the teens made the threats during a phone call, and investigators were able to trace the call to an address in Danbury.
