WASECA, Minn. (AP) — Authorities have filed attempted murder and explosives charges against a Waseca teenager.

The Free Press of Mankato reports ( ) the 17-year-old boy was arrested as the result of an investigation into three small explosive devices discovered at a school playground in late March.

The youth was charged in juvenile court Thursday with four counts of attempted first-degree murder, six counts of possessing explosive devices and two counts of first-degree criminal damage to property. The juvenile petition alleges he obtained weapons and explosives with the intent to kill his father, mother, sister and a school liaison officer.

He was arrested Tuesday night after the Waseca Police Department and Bloomington Bomb Squad executed search warrants at a home and a storage facility in Waseca.

Police and school officials plan a news conference.
