CHESTERFIELD, S.C. (AP) -- Students went through metal detectors
and extra security at Chesterfield High School today, after a
student was arrested and charged with possessing bomb making
Authorities say bomb-sniffing dogs checked the halls and
classrooms. Police met students at the doors.
Eighteen-year-old Ryan Schallenberger was assigned an attorney
during a brief hearing today. He didn't say anything, but appeared
agitated at the cameras awaiting him when he entered in an orange
jumpsuit. He was handcuffed and his ankles were shackled.
His attorney, William Spencer, did not immediately return a call
seeking comment.
Schallenberger will have a bond hearing tomorrow. He was
arrested Saturday when his parents called police after picking up
ten pounds of ammonium nitrate he'd ordered.
