Weber County prosecutors on Tuesday filed a felony charge in juvenile court against a 16-year-old Roy High School student who police say plotted to set off an explosive in the school.
In 2nd District Juvenile Court, the 16-year-old was charged with one count of use of a weapon of mass destruction, a first-degree felony. The boy's alleged co-conspirator, 18-year-old Dallin Todd Morgan, has been charged with the same count as an adult in 2nd District Court.
Police say the teens, both Roy High seniors, had planned to set off a bomb during a school assembly, then steal an airplane and fly to another country. Searches by police turned up no explosives.
