LEXINGTON, N.C. -- Detectives with the Davidson County Sheriff's Office say charges are pending against a juvenile after he or she made a bomb threat to a sibling.

Deputies were called to North Davidson High School Thursday afternoon for a report of a bomb threat.

In a press release, the sheriff's office said, "Students and staff were at the school for after school activities when a student received an anonymous voicemail stating that her vehicle was going to explode. Once deputies arrived, they secured the area and a Davidson County Sheriff's Office explosive detecting K-9 was used to determine there was no explosives present."

Detectives said they were able to quickly identify the suspect as a juvenile sibling to the victim.

They said the voicemail was a prank call and an isolated incident.

"Due to the nature of the incident and the disruption of the school activities, detectives will be consulting with Juvenile Justice and charges will be pending," the release concluded.

They did not provide any information about the suspect other than saying he or she is a juvenile.
