Suspected bomb plan thwarted

Sweet Home sophomore arrested in threat to school. Law enforcement officials say they have thwarted a plan to bomb Sweet Home High School with the arrest of a 15-year-old sophomore who had bomb-making materials and told friends he planned to use them at his school. A police search of the boy’s Town of Tonawanda home last week turned up piping bound with duct tape, ball bearings from roller blade wheels and fuse material he purchased at a hardware store. The boy also reportedly bought two pounds of gunpowder from a local drug dealer, and was seeking to purchase more but did not have the money. The first batch of gunpowder was not found during the search, and investigators say the boy may have used it earlier in a test blast. Law enforcement and school officials declined to release the boy’s name or address because he was charged in Family Court as a juvenile. Full Story
