October 18, 2006|By NIA-MALIKA HENDERSON

Two Anne Arundel County students have been charged with disrupting school activities and making false statements in connection with a series of bomb threats that were called in to their high school this month, county police said yesterday.

The suspects, whose names were not released because they are juveniles, are accused of making threatening phone calls Oct. 5 to Northeast High School, at 1121 Duvall Highway in Pasadena.

The threats forced an immediate evacuation of the school. Anne Arundel County police and fire departments and the state fire marshal's office responded to the scene and after a search of the school, students and faculty were allowed to return.

Police said the two juveniles bragged to other students about making the threats, and that a tip passed on to the school's administration led to their arrest.
