Suspect Identified In Explosive Device Case At Coeur d' Alene High School

OFFICIAL PRESS RELEASE: Coeur d'Alene Police School Resource Officer Steve Harris investigated the incident at Coeur d'Alene High School involving homemade explosives that were found on September 9th 2010 at 9:50am. The explosives had already been detonated by the time they were reported. CHS administrators exercised caution and locked the school down until officers were able to conduct a sweep for other devices.

This week Officer Harris received an anonymous tip that led to a 17 year old male Post Falls resident.

The male was interviewed about his involvement, and he confessed to making the explosive and setting it off at CHS. He and another 17 year old male from Post Falls drove to CHS on the evening of September 8th and ignited the explosive near the entrance to the football field. The second male was the driver of the car and did not ignite the explosive device, but was aware of what his friend was doing. The male that ignited the homemade explosive device indicated he made the device to watch it explode.

The male juvenile responsible for igniting the device will face felony charges of unlawful use of a destructive device. The second male juvenile will face accessory charges. The report will be sent to the Kootenai County Prosecutors office for formal review. Neither male was arrested for the offense. Their parents were notified of the possible charges.

Due to their ages their names will not be released.
