A teenager from Shell Knob receives a suspended sentence and unsupervised probation in a case involving a reported incendiary device.

Eighteen-year-old Clayton Scott Wells was originally charged with possession of an illegal weapon after his parents told authorities he brought a bomb home from school back in March.

State and federal agents responded to the home and rendered the device inert, according to the Stone County Sheriff’s Office.

The illegal weapon charge was eventually dropped, leaving only a misdemeanor charge of making a false report.

Stone County Prosecutor Matt Selby tells…


Wells received credit for 5 days of shock time served in the Stone County Jail. Selby says Wells is also ordered to complete community service and assessment for substance abuse, in addition to disciplinary actions taken by the Blue Eye School District.

Two other Blue Eye High School students were referred to juvenile authorities after 2 other explosive devices were reported to police.
