Authorities: Elida student brought knives to school

ELIDA, Ohio (AP) — Police in western Ohio took a middle school student into custody after the boy allegedly brought knives to school and had a notebook containing threatening comments.

Elida (eh-LEYE-duh) schools superintendent Don Diglia (DIGG'-lee-uh) says no one was hurt and the boy was suspended and is facing expulsion.

Diglia says the 13-year-old boy walked into the middle school principal's office shortly before noon Wednesday asking about school lockdown procedures.

Diglia says that after questioning the boy produced a small knife and a box cutter, and that authorities then found two more knives and a notebook with threatening comments in the boy's book bag in his locker.

American Township Police Chief Matt Redick told the Lima News ( ) the seventh-grader is being held in juvenile detention.
