CHANDLER, Ariz. - Chandler police say they've released a 16-year-old to his parents after earlier taking him into custody in connection with suspicious packages found at a school.

Police say the packages found at Chief Hill Learning Center on Tuesday didn't contain any explosives and that a device discovered at an apartment complex also was harmless.
 
Another student notified school officials the teen allegedly planned to carry out the threat at 11:25 a.m.
 
The teen was found at an apartment complex where a possible explosive device also was located, leading to a partial evacuation of the complex.

Police Sgt. Joseph Favazzo says detectives are working with the Maricopa County Attorney's Office and that they have decided to not file charges at this time.

Favazzo says the case remains under investigation.
 
The academy located near Chandler Boulevard and Cooper Road is an alternative program for junior high and high school students in the Chandler Unified School District.
