Police: Student Charged After Explosives Are Found in Locker

Posted: Updated:

VIRGINIA BEACH, Va. (AP)- A middle school student has been arrested after authorities say they found explosives in his school locker.
    
The Virginia Beach Fire Department said in a release on Tuesday that the 13-year-old student was taken into custody Friday. The juvenile is charged with two counts of manufacturing and possessing chemical explosive devices. The teen is a student at Landstown Middle School.
    
Macie Allen, a spokeswoman for the commonwealth's attorney, says school administrators received a report about the suspicious material and immediately contacted the school's resource officer.
    
Fire officials say investigators have found no evidence thus far that would lead them to believe the teen had malicious intent.
    
The student also faces disciplinary action from the school. It's unclear if the teen has an attorney.
