SANFORD, Maine (NEWS CENTER) - A Sanford high school student has been charged with bringing a shotgun and marijuana to school.
Friday morning a student alerted Sanford School Resource Officer Gordon of a suspicious vehicle parked in the Sanford High School parking lot with firearms inside of it. The student noticed that the vehicle was parked illegally near the vocational wing.
After an investigation, officer Gordon learned that the vehicle was driven by a student attending classes at the high school. After a search of the vehicle, the officer found marijuana in a glass jar, a digital scale, a rifle, a shotgun, ammunition, and miscellaneous hunting gear to include a compound bow.
Officials say the 17-year-old juvenile was taken out of class and was then charged with two counts of Aggravated Furnishing of Scheduled Drugs, both Class C crimes. He was removed from school grounds and released to the custody of his mother. The juvenile will be scheduled to appear at a later date in court.
