CHANDLER, Ariz. (AP) - Chandler police say they’ve released a 16-year-old to his parents after earlier taking him into custody in connection with suspicious packages found at a school.

Police say the packages found at Chief Hill Learning Center on Tuesday didn’t contain any explosives and that a device discovered at an apartment complex also was harmless.

Another student had notified school officials the teen allegedly planned to carry out a threat at 11:25 a.m.

The school and part of the apartment complex were evacuated.

Police Sgt. Joseph Favazzo says detectives are working with the Maricopa County Attorney’s Office and that they have decided to not file charges at this time.

Favazzo says the case remains under investigation.

The school is an alternative program for junior high and high school students.
