Student charged in Utah school bomb plotStudent charged in Utah high school bomb plot; police continue investigation
ROY, Utah (AP) ' Authorities have charged an 18-year-old man with possession of a weapon of mass destruction after they say he and another teenager planned to bomb a Utah high school.
Dallin Morgan and a 16-year-old were arrested Wednesday at Roy High School, about 30 miles north of Salt Lake City, after police were alerted to the plot by a fellow student.
The student received ominous text messages from one of the suspects.
Authorities say the pair had detailed blueprints of the school and had planned to try to steal a plane at a nearby airport after their attack.
Police had initially said no explosives were found. The charge filed Friday includes conspiring to use a weapon of mass destruction, not necessarily possessing one.
