JUNCTION CITY, Kan. (AP) - A 16-year-old boy is in custody in northeast Kansas, suspected of causing sporadic outages in a school district's computer network since mid-February.

The Junction City Police Department says the student was arrested Tuesday afternoon on 10 counts of illegal activities with computers. He was expected to be held in a juvenile facility pending a first appearance in Geary County District Court.

Police say the Junction City school district began experiencing unexplained network outages on Feb. 13. District officials notified police Tuesday morning that their technology specialists had traced the problems to the student.
