    Teen arrested for alleged Columbine-style plot

    A 17-year-old Michigan teenager is accused of plotting a Columbine-like attack on a high school after police say the plan was foiled by a man thousands of miles away.

    Police said Andrew Osantowski (pictured, right) made threats over the Internet to bomb Chippewa Valley High School in Clinton Township, Mich. Investigators executed a search warrant on the boy's home and a neighbor's home Thursday night.

    "Investigators then took into custody the student and his father," said Clinton Township police Chief Al Ernst. "Our investigators found what appears to be the student planning an attack on the school and our police officers."


    A neighbor was also arrested.

    Mills said there was no date for a planned attack, but it is believed Osantowski was plotting something "in the near future." He said the boy was "angry" at everyone and did not name a particular race of students.

    Someone gave the Osantowski verbal assistance on how to make a bomb and provided him with Web pages to do it, according to Capt. Douglas Mills.Items found during the searches include blueprints stolen from the high school, an AK-47 and other weapons, ammunition, 15 pipe bombs and instructional bomb-making videos and materials, reported WDIV-TV in Detroit. Police displayed some of the items, including tools stolen from local construction sites, in a Friday press conference.

    Clinton Township is about a 10-minute drive from me. Much much too close for comfort.
