RALEIGH. N.C.–A Raleigh high school student has been detained and accused of selling homemade bombs at school, according to police.

Wake County Schools told WTVD they found explosive materials on the Sanderson High School student, but it was a smoke producing chemical and not something considered a bomb.

According to the report, a search warrant shows that a student at Sanderson High School on Tuesday told staff members that another student had given her a smoke-producing chemical.

The message to parents said that a total of five students had obtained the chemical from the student, but police would not go into detail about what the explosive device entailed.

The 15-year-old student, who is only referred to as J.E. in search warrants, is being processed through the juvenile justice system.
