    UT - Two students charged in Roy High School bomb plot

    Investigators trying to determine how close two suspects were to pulling off attack


    ROY, Utah — Authorities on Friday charged an 18-year-old man with possession of a weapon of mass destruction after they say he and another teenager planned to bomb a Utah high school.

    Dallin Morgan and a 16-year-old were arrested Wednesday at Roy High School, about 30 miles north of Salt Lake City, after police were alerted to the plot by a fellow student who received ominous text messages from one of the suspects.

    "If I tell you one day not to go to school, make damn sure you and ... are not there," the message read, according to court records.

    Authorities said the pair had detailed blueprints of the school and had planned to try to steal a plane at a nearby airport after their attack. The students told police they had been learning to fly on a flight simulator program on their home computers.

    Roy High School sophomore Bailey Gerhardt told The Salt Lake Tribune she received text messages from one of the suspects and alerted school administrators.

    "I get the feeling you know what I'm planning," read one of the messages, according to court records. "Explosives, airport, airplane.

    The juvenile suspect also told investigators he was so "fascinated" by the Columbine massacre that he visited the school and interviewed the principal about the shootings.

    Columbine Principal Frank DeAngelis confirmed Friday he met with the 16-year-old student on Dec. 12 after the teenager told him he was doing a story for his school newspaper on the shootings.

    The parents of both students "woke up in the middle of a nightmare," Bond said. "They've been very cooperative."

    ROY, Utah (Reuters) - One of two Utah teenagers accused of plotting to set off a bomb at a school assembly was inspired by the 1999 Columbine massacre in Colorado and visited the high school there to interview its principal, authorities said in court papers released on Friday.
    Thank God this girl was of mind to immediately alert administration and as a result authorities.. These guys were well on there way to making Columbine look like an utter and complete failure!! This is terrifying that the ONLY thing that stood between these teens and a bloody massacre of our children IS ONE, SINGLE, YOUNG GIRL's DECISION TO SPEAK OUT!!!!

    We've only heard the tip of the iceberg at this point but I'll tell u what chills me to the bone is the fact that one of the two guys flew to Colorado on Dec 12th and met with the actual principal of Columbine to interview him about all the details of the Columbine Massacre!!

    Please scroll down and read the first logged comment and it will make your blood boil at what true ignorance there is here in the USA!!!!

    From August 2012:


    Morgan pleaded no contest Thursday to an amended count of criminal mischief, a second-degree felony, in connection with a plot to bomb an assembly at Roy High School.

    Lyon ordered Morgan to spend 105 days in jail and up to 18 months on probation... If Morgan pays a $500 fine and successfully completes probation, the charge will be reduced to a class A misdemeanor...

    Saunders said Thursday that the entire plan was "primarily initiated" by Hoggan. Morgan, who has no prior record, had a "much more minimal" role... Hoggan pleaded guilty in juvenile court to use of a weapon of mass destruction, a first-degree felony, as part of a plea bargain. He was sentenced in April to six months in a youth prison.
