TUCSON, Ariz. -- Authorities say two students at Tucson's Sunnyside High School are in custody for allegedly making online threats against their school.

Tucson police said Monday that the two boys- ages 16 and 17- were booked into the Pima County Juvenile Correction Center.

Police say the two are each facing one count of interference with an educational institution.

Officers were called to a home Sunday after a woman said she saw a remark on her child's Twitter account concerning a threat to the school.

Detectives located the boys responsible for the posts. Both claim the posts were meant as a joke and they had no intentions of harming anyone at Sunnyside.

Police say detectives didn't find any evidence that the teens had any equipment to carry through with their threats.
