Teen to be arraigned in Oregon bomb plot

ALBANY (AP) — An Oregon teenager accused of planning to blow up his high school is expected to be arraigned Tuesday on charges that include one count of attempted aggravated murder and six counts of manufacturing and possessing a destructive device, authorities said.

Grant Acord, 17, was arrested Thursday night after police got a tip that he was making a bomb to blow up West Albany High School about 75 miles south of Portland.

He will be charged as an adult in the case.

On Saturday, Benton County District Attorney John Haroldson said Acord will be charged as an adult with attempted aggravated murder.
