Published: December 3, 2015
5th-graders bomb plot: High School Bomb Plot, Five grade-school students were detained Wednesday after school officials uncovered their plan to damage the city’s high school, police said.
The students, all fifth-graders, brought a nonexplosive device to School 11 and were going to use it during a field trip to Clifton High School, Detective Sgt. Robert Bracken said. According to The Record, the device contained vinegar and cinnamon.
“It was not a prank,” Bracken told NJ Advance Media. “They had a legitimate plan.”
School 11 officials learned of the plan and called police, who later discovered written plans for an attack.
Police also said someone else may have helped the students come up with the plan, according to News 12. The news outlet also said the students were 10 and 11 years old.
The students were detained by police and later released into the custody of their parents, Bracken said. It’s not yet clear what charges these students will face as the prosecutor’s office will be reviewing the matter, he said.
Bracken declined to discuss specific details of the device, but he said it was “benign” and not explosive.
