Police responded just after 10 a.m. today to a 911 call made from a pay phone reporting an explosive device in a bathroom on the campus, located at 1235 Mendocino Ave.

The students remained calm during the evacuation and left their classrooms in an orderly fashion while police swept the campus, a school receptionist said.

An officer found the three juveniles and Joel Limon near the pay phone. All four admitted to being involved in the threat and were arrested, police said.

Police did not find any suspicious devices on campus, and classes were allowed to resume.
