LEWIS COUNTY, Ky. (WSAZ) - A student at Lewis County High School has been arrested and charged with making terroristic threats.

The Lewis County, Ky. Sheriff says the arrest was the result of an alleged threat at the school Thursday morning.

The Sherriff’s Office says they received information that a male student was reportedly going to bring a gun to school.

During the investigation, deputies learned the student was actually going to bring a M-80 firecracker to school and detonate it.

The Sheriff says M-80’s are a large class of firecrackers that are illegal to possess.

Following his arrest, the juvenile was taken to the Boyd County Detention Center.

Because the student is a juvenile, his name is not being released.
