Radnor High students questioned about stolen phone, video


Radnor police are investigating an incident at Radnor High School involving personal information on a stolen cell phone that may have been distributed to other students at the school.

At about 10 a.m. Wednesday, police were called for a fight between two boys at the school, said Lt. Chris Flanagan at a news conference Thursday. The dispute centered around a stolen cell phone, Flanagan said.

Police are looking into rumors that personal information on the phone had been sent to other students, Flanagan said, but he could not confirm whether that information was of a sexual nature.

Area television stations initially reported that police were investigating students for posting a video of two classmates involved in sex acts. Flanagan could not confirm those reports.

Police notified the Delaware County District Attorney and obtained a search warrant for material on the cell phone, which was confiscated by police, Flanagan said.

A theft charge regarding the stolen cell phone is likely, Flanagan said.

Four to five students have already been interviewed by police about the incident.
