Two Morgan High School students have been arrested after the school was locked down Friday when authorities searched for bombs.

Morgan County Sheriff Thomas Jenkins says staff at the school found a note that said "bomb" as well as two devices that appeared to be explosive in nature.

The school was evacuated and students were sent to the junior high school.

Bomb dogs were used to search the facility, and authorities gathered the evidence from what they're calling "McGyver-type" bombs.

The names of the two suspects are not being released because they are juveniles.

Sheriff Jenkins says they were taken to the Muskingum County Juvenile Detention Center.
