WAPAKONETA, Ohio (AP) -- Police took into custody a 16-year-old student at Wapakoneta High School whom they accuse of having what appeared to be components to make homemade bombs.
Police were called to the school Monday afternoon after a student alerted administrators to a possible threat.
A teacher later discovered what appeared to be explosive paraphernalia in a bag being carried by the 16-year-old, Superintendent Keith Horner said. He said a BB gun also was found.
The items were removed from the school and destroyed by members of a police bomb squad from Lima, Lima police Sgt. Phil Miller said.
Students were sent home for the day, and the school was searched as a precaution.
No charges have been filed. The Wapakoneta police department said the boy was being held on a probation violation. The Auglaize County prosecutor's office was awaiting completion of the police investigation before reviewing the case.
