GREENCASTLE, Pa. - Two Greencastle/Antrim High School students are facing expulsion from school for bringing a homemade explosive device to school, Principal Jack Appleby said Wednesday.
One of the boys made the device to sell to the other, officials said.
The students, both 14 and in ninth grade, will be referred to Franklin County juvenile authorities on charges of possession of a weapon on school property for disposition, said Greencastle Police Chief Terry Sanders.
Meanwhile, they were in custody of school officials and their parents, Sanders said. Both were placed on 10-day suspension.
The youths appeared before a school board committee with their parents Wednesday morning, Appleby said. "The committee will make a recommendation and the board will decide at its meeting Tuesday night whether they will be expelled," he said.
