Police: N.J. High School Student Charged With Possessing Weapon

Posted: Updated:

A 16-year-old boy in Atlantic County, N.J., is under arrest, charged with possession of a weapon.

Police in Galloway Township say administrators at Cedar Creek High School called them because a student was acting suspiciously.

Police removed the student from school and searched his home, where they found electronics and chemicals that could cause an explosion.

Investigators say at no point was anyone at the school in any danger.

FOX 29's Dave Schratwieser spoke to the student's mother Wednesday, and he'll have more details in the case during live reports on the FOX 29 News at 5 & 6.
