Wesley College student charged for bringing loaded gun to school

A first form student of Wesley College found himself in serious trouble on Monday.  The student brought a loaded gun to school. It wasn’t a show and tell day but someone did inform the authorities that the school was in jeopardy because of this young man.  The Police department was called in and a search of his knapsack lead to the discovery of one nine-millimeter pistol with the serial numbers intact. The serial number was traced to a licensed gun owner by the name of Ricardo Castillo. Castillo had already reported his weapon as stolen. So the student was arrested and charged in the presence of his mother for Handling Stolen Goods, Kept Firearm Without a License, and Kept Ammunition Without a License.

    Apparently he was holding it for a ‘friend’. He also apparently has a heart problem too, so no doubt his Mother will be in tears during the court appearance, pleading for his release on medical grounds……. I have no sympathy, he knew it was wrong, so shouldn’t have done it. Simple as that.

    When i was going to high school in the 90′s i once took two guns to school. Had no intentions of hurting anyone, just wanted to play ‘bad man’, fortunately i was never caught and i never took them back again. when you young you fool, lotta people seem to forget how foolish these young people are.
