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.

    What's wrong with these kids? My children attend Morgan school along with neices and nephews. What does this do to the innocent ones who are put in this position. Children behaviors start at home. So what kind of life have they been living that they think its okay to scare or threaten the lives of others. Obviously not a Christian one. May God forgive them for there ignorance and they're actions.

    I go to Morgan Junior High, and when the high school kids came to our school because of a bomb threat we all thought it was just some joke a kid had pulled to get out of school, we didn't think it was a real bomb. we were all surprised when we heard that 2 students were taken into custody.
