Posted: Updated:

NEWPORT NEWS, VA. (AP) - Two Newport News students who put hand sanitizer in their teacher's drinks are facing felony charges.

Police spokesman Lou Thurston tells WAVY-TV the two have been arrested and each charged with attempted poisoning.

The investigation began in late January when a school resource officer received a tip. The teacher was alerted and she called police.

The intended target of the alleged poison attempt is a 66-year-old Hampton woman.
