ST. MARTIN -- A student who reportedly found a note saying a bomb would explode inside St. Martin Junior Middle School was arrested and accused of writing the note, officials said.
Jackson County Sheriff's deputies responded Wednesday to the campus after a report of a bomb threat.
The school resource officer got a call from the principal who said a student found a note in the bathroom stating "a bomb will blow at 2:00."
After questioning, officials determined the student, age 14, who found the note also wrote it.

The student was arrested and taken to the Jackson County Youth Detention Center on the charge of falsely reporting of a bomb or explosive.
The Criminal Investigation Division and the Jackson County Sheriff's Department Explosive and Ordinance Detection K-9 handler responded to the scene.
The teen is the second arrested after falsely reporting a bomb at a school. A 15-year-old was arrested in November after a threat at D'Iberville High School.
It's the first bomb threat at a South Mississippi school since Nov. 20, when six threats were reported within eight days.
