The Dayton Daily News (http://bit.ly/WcT6n1 ) reports that the boys — ages 13, 14 and 15 — are being held in a juvenile detention facility following an initial court appearance Thursday in Miami County.
Police said the 14-year-old is accused of writing a threatening note on a table this week at Tippecanoe Middle School in Tipp City, north of Dayton. The 15-year-old accused of writing a threat on toilet paper at Tippecanoe High School.
The 13-year-old is accused of leaving a threatening message in a boys' restroom at Troy Junior High School Wednesday.
A series of threatening notes left during the past week at the schools has unsettled school officials and police.
