They say security footage showed him with a large backpack, running out of the building when the lockdown announcement was made.
Rapid City Police say the 14-year old boy was found at the Civic Center with a marijuana pipe and a small folding knife.
He was charged with possession of drug paraphernalia and possession of a weapon on school grounds and was released to his parents.

Police say they have no reason to believe the boy intended to harm anyone at the school.
