3 juveniles detained after homemade bomb explodes in Carmel Valley

Posted: Updated:

SAN DIEGO (CBS 8) - Three juveniles were in police custody Monday afternoon after allegedly detonating homemade bombs near a Carmel Valley school, police said.

It happened just before 12:30 p.m. Monday after a campus supervisor at Carmel Valley Middle School reportedly saw the three unidentified juveniles setting off the devices at a recreation center near the school.

According to police, one of the children who was detained told authorities they placed toilet paper, vinegar, water and baking soda into a bottle and watched it explode.

Later Monday afternoon, the juveniles -- a seventh grader and two eighth graders -- were released to their parents.

"If they were 18 years old or older they could have ended up being arrested and charged with a felony and gone to jail. Worst case, being juveniles, they could have been taken to Juvenile Hall and charges pressed against them," San Diego Fire-Rescue spokesman Maurice Luque said.

According to a CBS 8 report, school officials planned to address the issue Tuesday.
