Two young people are facing serious charges after an alleged plot to kill other students at a school in Eastern Passage.

Police say they turned themselves in Tuesday and were brought to the detachment with their parents.

Charges include uttering threats and conspiracy to commit murder. Police say some of the threats were made on social media.

It stems from an investigation into a report of threats at Eastern Passage Education Centre on February 7.

Investigators say the youths did not have access to weapons, but officers seized multiple devices during their search of two homes on February 8.

It is not known how many students were allegedly targeted or the nature of the threats.

They have been released on conditions and are due in court on February 22.

RCMP say no further information will be released to protect the identity of the victims and two youths arrested.
