Authorities say a student as been arrested after a note threatening a bombing was found in a locker at a western Ohio high school.

The school superintendent in Anna, about 45 miles north of Dayton, says the note was found late last week.  It warned of a bombing this Thursday.

The Shelby County sheriff's office says an unidentified student was being held on a charge of delinquency by reason of inducing panic.

The arrest came as school officials found a second threatening note.  The Dayton Daily News reports no details about that note were released.

The office says investigators have found no indication of an explosive device but have extra security measures in place at the Anna schools.  They're restricting building access and will have bomb-sniffing dogs on hand.
