NEWPORT NEWS, Va. (AP) — A 13-year-old middle school student in Newport News has been charged with making threats to bomb following a post he made on Facebook.

Newport News police say the Glidersleeve Middle School student posted that he was tired of the disrespect at school and that he might “give a couple of good pipe bombs on people.”

The name of the boy has not been released.

Police say when they arrived at the boy’s home they didn’t find any bomb making material. He was released into the custody of his parents.
