CLIFTON - The Passaic County Prosecutor's Office has released some information about an alleged "bomb" threat at Clifton High School by several elementary school children.
Passaic County Prosecutor Camelia Valdes called the plan an "immature and unrealistic plot" that was in response to "a perceived bullying incident" involving someone one of the students knows, who attends the high school.
Four School 11 students, ages 10 and 11, were involved in the plan. Previously, the Clifton Police Department said that five students were involved.

The "device" they had was actually an empty mini Altoids tin, which contained vegetable oil, salad dressing and cinnamon sticks. The "bomb" was neither flammable nor dangerous, according to law enforcement.
Officials at School 11 did find the students had some type of written-down plan about how the plot would go down.
None of the students were arrested or charged. They were suspended from school and will be required to enter into a Station House Adjustment Agreement with the Clifton Police Department. This agreement is used for first-time offenders.
The students will also be required to undergo a psychiatric evaluation before they are allowed to return back to school.
Failure to adhere to any of the conditions could lead to formal charges, the prosecutor said.
