TEENAGER WITH CACHE OF WEAPONS ARRESTED by; Rick McCann www.privateofficer.com

PLYMOUTH MEETING, Pa. -- OCT. 12, 2007
A teenager who felt he had been bullied amassed a weapons cache and tried to recruit another boy for a possible school attack, authorities said Thursday.
Police found a 9 mm assault rifle, air guns, hand grenades, a bomb-making book, videos of the 1999 Columbine attack in Colorado and violence-filled notebooks at the boy's home Wednesday, prosecutors said. They found no ammunition for the most dangerous weapon, the assault rifle.

Police got a tip from a student at Plymouth Whitemarsh High School before receiving permission from the suspect's parents to search their home, where the 14-year-old was arrested.
The boy had talked about launching a school attack, authorities said. The boy had attended middle school in the same district, but had been home-schooled for the past year-and-a-half.

"I do not think an attack was imminent and I am not certain that an attack was going to occur at all," District Attorney Bruce L. Castor Jr. said. "It could have simply been big talking by a kid who thought that he was bullied previously and he was going to exact his revenge."
Classes were held as usual at the high school in the Philadelphia suburbs. The arrest came the same day a 14-year-old with a history of mental problems shot and wounded four people at a Cleveland high school before killing himself.
