The unidentified teen was arrested Monday night on weapons-related charges after the discovery of the explosive device sending smoke from a backpack forced an evacuation of Pine View High School.

"They confirmed this absolutely was an explosive device and had it detonated it could have caused severe injury, potentially death and damage", Officer Lona Trombley, spokeswoman for the St. George Police Department, told ABC News Wednesday.

A message sent to parents early Wednesday referenced a "non-specific threat to our school community" as the reason for the increased police presence.

"It was also determined that the male had been researching information and expressing interest in ISIS and promoting the organization", police said.

Police determined there was no credible threat and identified a male high school student who admitted to writing the note.

The police department hailed the students who notified faculty of the smoking backpack.

"I was just really scared", said one student.

No one was hurt Monday after the backpack was found in a common area of the school by a student who reported it to a teacher.

The juvenile was expected to be arraigned Tuesday at Wareham District Court on the following criminal offenses: bomb/weapons threat (MGL 269 S14), disturbing a school assembly.

School staff found a note today that was written by a student. He said that since the mass shooting February 14 at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida, security has been boosted at all schools in the district. Any threat made, especially against a public school, is taken seriously, as is evidenced by a recent incident in Folsom.
