Teen, father arrested after threats made against RB High School

RANCHO BERNARDO – A teen and his father have been arrested on suspicion of making threats against Rancho Bernardo High School.

The San Diego Police Department also found ghost guns, explosives and rocket-propelled grenades in a raid on their home, according to multiple media reports.

The SDPD could not confirm the reports to City News Service, but NBC7 and ABC 10 News have reported similar accounts of the arrests and attributed the accounts to San Diego police.

Police arrested a Rancho Bernardo High student and his father on Monday after officials learned the teen had allegedly been making threats against the school, 10 News reported.

The teen allegedly told his friends Friday and those students alerted police, according to 10 News.

On Tuesday morning, police seized items from the home, including dozens of ghost guns, bomb and gun-making materials, emergency food rations and multiple computers, 10 News reported. 

Police bomb squad officers also removed an RPG rocket launcher from the house.

Classes are taking place as scheduled Tuesday, but there is an increased police presence around the campus.

NBC 7 reported the teen’s father, 45-year-old Neil Anders, was a “Doomsday” preparing dad. 

Officers said the wife and other children were home at the time and allowed to leave during the arrest. 

Anders was booked into San Diego County Jail and his son was taken to juvenile hall.
