WASHINGTON TERRACE, Utah (AP) - A teenager who police say was involved in making a fake bomb threat at a junior high school in Washington Terrace is being charged with making a terrorist threat.

The Standard-Examiner in Ogden reports (https://bit.ly/1NxWOSo ) that Weber County Sheriff’s Department Lt. Lane Findlay says the incident occurred on Dec. 9 when school officials found a note posted on a door.

Police discovered it was a hoax and used surveillance footage to identify three students responsible for the prank. Their names are not being released because they are juveniles, but police say they are between 14-15 years old.

Prosecutors are still deciding whether to charge the other two students.

Findlay says the charges show it’s not acceptable to make a bomb threat as part of a prank.
