Rockland Police: Teens Arrested For Threats Against High School

Authorities say two teenagers accused of threatening to harm people at their high school in a call to a Boston TV station have been arrested.

Officials say the two freshmen at Rockland High School were charged Friday with making terroristic threats and disturbing a school assembly.

Rockland Police say they were contacted by the TV station after the students called the station on Friday. Police say the students were identified, located and arrested within 30 minutes of their initial call to the TV station.

Officials say the investigation is ongoing and they do not yet know if the threats were credible. Because the students are juveniles, their names have not been released.

School facilities in Rockland were briefly ordered to shelter in place after the threat was reported.
