LYNCHBURG, Va. (AP) - Lynchburg police say bomb-making ingredients have been found in the home of a student accused of bringing a chemical bomb to a school.
Items found by investigators are similar in nature to the bomb that was brought to the Rivermont School last week. He declined to provide details.
Police have said the 14-year-old student brought the bomb to the school in his backpack. Staff became aware of the threat and took the bomb outside. State police took the bomb to a secure location away from the school and defused it.
The student has been charged with felony possession or manufacture of an explosive device.
No one was injured in the incident.
