2 Wasatch High School students arrested after classmate says they threatened the school

HEBER CITY — Two Wasatch High School students were arrested Saturday on suspicion of making terroristic threats against the Heber City school.

The arrested students made concerning statements to a classmate on Friday, and that classmate told his parents who then went to the police, according to a joint statement from the Wasatch County School District, Heber City Police and the Wasatch County Sheriff’s Office.

The two students were taken into custody by a school resource officer and transferred to a juvenile detention center. They are charged with felony threats of terrorism and threats against a school, a misdemeanor.

Classes at Wasatch High will resume as normal Monday morning, the statement says, as officials have determined there is no ongoing threat. “We commend the student who had the courage to come forward and encourage students to continue to report any concerning information in the future,” it says. “Any possible threat is taken seriously and addressed accordingly by all agencies involved.”

The incident is under investigation.
