AURORA, Colo. — Police have arrested three juveniles in connection with an alleged pipe bomb found at Mrachek Middle School on Aug. 11.
Due to the suspects’ young ages, police will not release names or other details, the Aurora Police Department.
Despite the concern, investigators released surveillance pictures earlier this week that showed three suspects, including their faces.
The three young men in the video left the pipe bomb in the back of Mrachek by some trash cans. But it wasn’t until Monday morning that a school resource officer found it.
The pipe bomb never blew up, but it still ignited concern, confusion and a criminal investigation.
“Any explosive device, attempted explosive device, we take very seriously. Not only for the safety of the public, but the safety of the individuals who are trying to make explosives. It’s very dangerous,” said Cpt. Diane Lord with Aurora Fire.
