Times-News: Student Jailed After Accessing Bomb Info on Web, Bringing Flare Gun to School



A student at Hailey's Silver Creek High School was booked into the Blaine County Jail April 4 after police said he violated his probation and carried a flare gun into the school.

This morning's Twin Falls Times-News reports that Colton Turner, 18, of Ketchum, had been disciplined at the alternative high school for what school officials described as accessing inappropriate content through the school's computer network. Law enforcement said Turner had been looking up information on how to build bombs and blow up buildings. Police said they also found synthetic marijuana and a flare gun on Turner's person.

Turner had been previously charged for possession of drug paraphernalia and one of the conditions of his probation was to stay in school. Once he was kicked out of school, he violated his probation.
