Three middle school students arrested on conspiracy charges
LAKELAND (FOX 13) - Three middle school students face serious charges after police say they were planning to cause "chaos" at their school.
Two have been arrested; one is in the hospital and has been served with a warrant, FOX 13's Josh Cascio reported from a Lakeland Police Department news conference.
The student in the hospital is being held under Florida's Baker Act, a law that allows someone to be involuntarily committed for psychiatric evaluation, and examined for up to three days.
The students are charged with conspiracy to commit first-degree murder, conspiracy to commit aggravated battery, and conspiracy to construct destructive devices. They are two girls and a boy, ages 12 and 13, police said.
The arrests may have averted a potential crisis at Sleepy Hill Middle School, the Lakeland Police Department said Friday. Full Article
