Two teenage boys were arrested this week in an alleged plot to blow up their high school outside of Salt Lake City, Utah. Dallin Morgan, 18, was charged and released on $10,000 bail on Friday, while the name of a 16-year-old boy also charged in the plot is being withheld. Bailey Gerhardt, a sophomore at Roy High School, tipped off police when she received a text message from the younger suspect asking her, “If I told you to stay home on a certain day, would you?” Gerhardt told investigators that the boy had recently been dumped by his girlfriend and had a bizarre fascination with the Columbine shootings. The Roy Chief of Police ++told The Salt Lake Tribune that the plot was “months in planning.”
