2 Students Arrested for Threats

March 13, 2001

SANTA ANA, Calif. (AP) _ Two teen-age boys have been charged with making terrorists threats against their classmates in two separate incidents, police said.

The arrests came a week after two people were killed and 13 wounded in a shooting spree at Santana High School.

More than 500 people called Orange County police after an anonymous e-mail was circulated to students at Aliso Niguel High School, said Assistant Sheriff George Jaramillo.

A teen-age boy, whose name was withheld, was arrested and jailed over the weekend, but more than 2,300 of the 2,800 students opted to stay home from school Monday.

Also on Monday, a 14-year-old Capistrano Valley High School student was charged after students told teachers he’d threatened to kill another student. Authorities found a pistol at the boy’s home.
