Newark Police say two students have been charged in connection with a recent bomb threat at Newark High School.

Police Chief Steven Sarver says after a week long investigation the students, one in ninth grade and the other in tenth, confessed to the written bomb threat that put the school on a two hour delay last Friday.

Sarver says both juveniles have been charged with breaking and entering and inducing panic. One of the juveniles is facing an obstructing justice charge.

Both students are currently on probation through Licking County Juvenile Court.

They are being held in the juvenile facility and are scheduled to appear in court on Monday
