Two 16-year-old boys turned themselves in to the Boulder County Sheriff's Office on Friday afternoon in connection with a threat made at Niwot High School in February.

Sheriff's officials did not release the boys' names because they are juveniles, but a news release stated that one boy faces charges of interference with an educational institution, first-degree criminal tampering, fourth-degree arson, second-degree criminal tampering and criminal mischief, all misdemeanors.

The second boy is being charged with first-degree criminal tampering and criminal mischief. The boys were booked on $1,000 bonds on Friday and ordered to have no contact with each other.

Sheriff's Cmdr. Mike Wagner said one of the boys is accused of lighting hand sanitizer on fire at school, and both boys were allegedly tampering with electrical outlets.

The sheriff's office received several Safe2Tell reports regarding a video and comments a student at the school posted on social media on Feb. 16 regarding the Stoneman Douglas High School shooting in Florida that had occurred two days earlier.

Police immediately responded to the school and an investigation was launched by the sheriff's office, the high school, the St. Vrain Valley School District and Longmont police. Two boys were identified in connection to the video.

The sheriff's office asked the school district to keep information regarding the probe confidential to "protect the integrity of the ongoing investigation," and both students were barred from school district property.

Police searched the students' lockers and served search warrants at their homes and on their electronic devices.
