The sister of church shooter Dylann Roof was arrested for bringing drugs, pepper spray and a knife to her South Carolina school, authorities said.

The Richland County Sheriff’s Department tells WIS-TV 18-year-old Morgan Roof was arrested Wednesday after an administrator at A.C. Flora High School had contacted a school resource officer.

Morgan Roof is charged with marijuana possession and two counts of carrying weapons on school grounds. A judge set her bond at $5,000, and she was screened for a public defender. She is not allowed to return to the school.

Investigators say Morgan Roof also posted a Snapchat that alarmed fellow students, but was not arrested for it.
