(Shelby County) An 18-year-old Fairley High School student was arrested Thursday after a .40-caliber handgun and bag of marijuana were found in his locker.
Curtis Walton was charged with carrying a weapon on a school campus and simple possession of marijuana.
Someone reported an “odor” coming from the locker, so the principal had it opened and searched.
The school resource officer than alerted the Shelby County Sheriff’s Office.
Walton admitted to officers that both the gun and marijuana were his.
A Kirby High School student was also charged Thursday with carrying a weapon on campus after he was caught with a knife.
