A 19-year-old man has been sentenced to probation for growing psychedelic mushrooms at a Hutchinson business.
Police have arrested two teens who are accused of plotting to attack a Kansas high school.
The Hutchinson News reports that the 15- and 14-year-old Hutchinson boys were taken into custody Tuesday. They’re being held on suspicion of conspiracy to commit capital murder at Hutchinson High School.
Capt. Troy Hoover of the Hutchinson Police Department said the suspected plot included plans for a pipe bomb and named specific faculty members as the first targets. Hoover says some of their writings taken as evidence were at the school.
Hoover says one of the teens was the younger brother of a student accused of making similar threats against the school last spring. In the earlier case, Hutchinson police arrested five teens. They were sentenced to probation after entering no contest pleas.
