NEW YORK (1010 WINS) -- Three 16-year-old males were arrested Thursday for conspiring to build a bomb to detonate at their high school in the Long Island hamlet of Bohemia, Suffolk County Police said.

The trio -- whose plans targeted Connetquot High School -- were charged with 4th degree conspiracy.

"Fifth Precinct officers responded to Connetquot High School, located at 190 7th St., after a school administrator called police this morning to say he was informed by multiple students that they overheard three students during the bus ride home on May 1 discussing building a bomb to detonate at the school," police said in a statement. 

The homes of all three students were searched and one of the students possessed a copy of "The Anarchist Cookbook," which contains bomb making instructions.
