KEENESBURG, Colo. — Two students were arrested Monday after an alleged threat was made at Weld Central High School, the Weld County Sheriff’s Office said Tuesday.

Sheriff’s deputies and detectives were alerted to potential school violence at the school and several students were identified as co-conspirators in the threat, the sheriff’s office said.

Two students were taken into custody and booked on charges of interference with staff, faculty, or students of an educational institution. They were booked into the Platte Valley Youth Detention facility in Greeley.

“The investigation is ongoing at this time but there appears to be no remaining credible threat towards the safety of Weld Central High School, students or staff,” the Sheriff’s Office said in a release.

The specific nature of the threat and the identities of the students were not released.
