CUYAHOGA COUNTY -  Common Pleas Judge Timothy McCormick on Wednesday sealed the results of a search warrant executed by the FBI on a home of a "juvenile suspect" in the Orange High School bomb threats, according to court records.

On Tuesday, the FBI and Pepper Pike Police searched a home on Blossom Lane in Orange Village as part of its investigation into threats of bombing and other violence that was emailed to the high school, the records say.

Authorities also searched a home on West Orange Hill Circle in Orange Village on Tuesday. Documents related to that search were not available.

No charges have been filed as a result of the searches.

Prosecutor Bill Mason's office asked McCormick to seal the search warrant and other related documents for the Blossom Lane home because the documents include "recent and detailed information...provided by the juvenile suspect and confidential sources," the records noted.

Prosecutors argued that making the records public could compromise the ongoing investigation and reveal the names of the juvenile suspect and the juvenile confidential sources.

A friend of the Orange High student who lives in the West Orange Hill Circle home told the Investigator Tom Meyer that the boy would have nothing to do with this.

"My sense is that he had zero involvement," Parker Maimbourg said. "He wants a future. He wants to be successful and he would not throw his life away doing something stupid like this."

Maimbourg said the FBI interviewed him a month ago as well, regarding the bomb threats.

"I think we got picked out because we had technological knowledge," he said. "I think that was one of the main reasons because (the boy) is really tech savvy."
