Holland says detectives have identified the vehicle on school district surveillance video and that two 17-year-olds and an 18-year-old were behind the hoax.

Holland says the three teens apparently meant this as a practical joke, but he says it wasn't.

None of the teens have been arrested.

Holland says police have now turned the results of their investigation over to the Washington County District Attorney's Office for possible prosecution.
