Teens trigger dry ice bomb in school bathroom

No one injured; three Goodwill students arrested

VICTORVILLE • Three students are under arrest after they set off an explosive device, similar to a dry ice bomb, in a bathroom at Goodwill Education Center.

No one was injured in the incident — including the three teens accused of making and setting off the bomb, who were nearby when it exploded — and no property was damaged, according to San Bernardino County Sheriff’s officials.

The small explosion took place at 10:26 a.m. Friday at the alternative school on Topas Road in Victorville. The San Bernardino County Fire Department and Sheriff’s Bomb/Arson detail were immediately notified, sheriff’s officials said.

Three 17-year-old male students from the school were arrested following the incident, though their names were not released since they are minors. A Victorville teen was arrested for incinerating an explosive device, while another Victorville teen and an Adelanto teen were arrested for making an explosive device.

Goodwill is an alternative school geared toward students who need to recover credits, are in danger of dropping out, are having behavior problems or prefer an independent-study program. The goal is to send most students back to their home schools once they get on track.
