COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. (AP) - A former employee at a private college preparatory school in Colorado has pleaded guilty in a father-son plot to ignite a smoke bomb in the school’s cafeteria.

The Colorado Springs Gazette reports (https://bit.ly/2h6aTiq ) that 46-year-old Bryan Bolding could serve one to three years in prison or probation after entering his plea on Thursday. Bolding was a technology worker at Fountain Valley School when authorities say he learned he was losing his job and plotted with his 16-year-old son to pull off a prank meant to induce terror.

The scheme fizzled, however, as a cafeteria worker noticed the device next to the salad bar and watched Bolding’s son run off holding something in his hand. Authorities say he was holding an igniter.
