WHDH: Three middle school students in Waltham are facing serious trouble.

According to police, three McDevitt Middle School students tried to get their teacher to drink some type of cleaning solution by hiding it in her water bottle on the morning of November 12.

Fortunately, the teacher was unharmed as she noticed that her water bottle had been tampered with in time.

Local residents said they are glad the teacher noticed in time.

"That's a crime, if somebody can be injured like that, because if she doesn't smell it before drinking it, then it can be very dangerous," said one man.

Household cleaners, especially those with ammonia or bleach, can lead to vomiting, internal burning and bleeding, organ damage, and even death.

The police investigation concluded that the students, two 13-year olds and a 12-year old, put some sort of cleaner in the water bottle. It is unclear how much, but the teacher was able to smell it.

All three students have been charged with attempted poisoning and were suspended indefinitely.

Now you just know that this took place in a predominantly white school.

Because only white kids would be allowed to buy these terrorist materials in the first place.

So household products are terrorist materials? Do you not clean your house?
Such a stupid thing to say.

Worthless thugs is an understatement!

Comments to the ladies disputing one another. Ash you are a racist so your opinions are worthless. The kids are charged only with attempted poisoning, while in fact they did with premeditation add a harmful substance to the teachers drink to harm her. The charges should therefore be more substantial. Like it or not good behavior gets rewarded and bad behavior should be punished particularly when the act could have resulted in the death of another person.
