The Ramsey County Sheriff's Office says Friday's search by federal and local officers was spurred by a parent's report that a student from the Academy for Sciences & Agriculture in Vadnais Heights made a threat against another student.

Ramsey County Sheriff Jack Serier says the arrests stopped "a potential tragedy."

The boy's parents are facing charges of negligent storage of firearms.
