    Administrators detained the 15-year-old student after they found the item in his backpack. 

    The teen was booked into the youth services center.

    Deputies said the student brought the device to school after telling other students over social media on Thursday night. There was a discussion about possibly detonating the device either on campus or off-campus during the time of a scheduled student assembly. 

    Investigators recovered four additional explosive devices from the home of student’s guardians. It is unknown how the student got the devices. 

    Deputies said the devices were turned over to a sheriff’s sergeant, who is an explosive ordnance technician and a member of the Washington State Patrol Regional Bomb Squad. 

    The investigation is ongoing.
