KINSTON, N.C. (AP) — North Carolina authorities have issued arrest warrants for a man after investigators found a homemade explosive in an abandoned vehicle near a high school.

The Lenoir County Sheriff’s Office said on its Facebook page Monday it was looking for Joshua Lynn Morris of Greene County. Detectives have filed multiple felony charges against Morris, including larceny and possession of stolen goods or property. He’s also charged with several misdemeanors.

Security was increased at North Lenoir High School after investigators say they found a homemade explosive in an abandoned vehicle near the school.

The investigation began Saturday after an all-terrain vehicle used for maintenance was stolen from the school. The vehicle was found, and a search turned up another vehicle in a field with what was described as a homemade explosive inside.
