Dynamite at Ashtabula County school

ASHLAND COUNTY, OH (WOIO) - A student busted with a stick of dynamite.

It happened last Friday at the Ashtabula County Technical and Career Center.

Deputies say the 16-year-old student told another boy he planned on setting it off in the center's auto mechanics class. That student told school officials who called the Ashtabula County Sheriff.

The dynamite was found in his back pack. The student denied saying he was going to set it off in school. He  told deputies he got the dynamite from his garage at home.

The Lake County Bomb Squad disposed of the device.

The teen has been suspended for 10 days and may face expulsion.

The prosecutor is currently reviewing the case and will decide on charges.
