South Carolina authorities arrested Morgan Roof, the younger sister of Charleston church shooter Dylann Roof for bringing drugs, pepper spray and a knife to her school.

The Richland County Sheriff’s officials confirmed the arrest of Morgan Roof Wednesday.

WIS-T reports that Morgan Roof was booked after a faculty member notified a school resource officer.

Police charged the 18-year-old on two counts of possessing weapons on school grounds and marijuana possession.

A judge subsequently set bond at $5,000 for Roof and she was screened for a public defender.

As part of her bond package, Morgan Roof is prohibited from returning to the school grounds.

Additionally, police officials said Roof was not charged for posting an alarming Snapchat video which had raised concerns among fellow students.

A letter issued to parents by administrators on the school’s Twitter page explained the incident, which had occurred as students walked out in remembrance of the 17 victims massacred during the Parkland, Florida school shooting on Valentine’s Day.

Dylan Roof was consequently found guilty of the 2015 mass shooting at a Charleston church that killed nine African-American parishioners.
