A Maplewood teenager was charged Wednesday with felony terroristic threats in connection with a fake bomb threat phoned in to Roseville Area High School.

The 15-year-old allegedly called anonymously Tuesday and left a voice mail indicating that he would "blow up" the school at 7:30 a.m. Wednesday, according to Roseville police. Authorities were called to the school at 1240 W. County Rd. B2 about 12:53 p.m. Tuesday.

School officials and police searched the building. No suspicious items were found.

During questioning by detectives Tuesday night, the boy admitted making the threat as a prank, and was then arrested, police said.

Roseville police are investigating whether others may have been involved.

Police spokesman Lt. Lorne Rosand said no other information is available because the case involves a juvenile.
