TOLEDO, Ohio (WTVG) - A Rogers High School student was arrested after bringing a loaded gun to school on Monday.

On Sept. 11 at 11:39 a.m., Student Resource Officers from the Toledo Police Department and Toledo Public Schools were notified that a student possibly had a weapon at Rogers High School.

Officials were able to make contact with the 17-year-old student and asked if he had any weapons on him. The student then immediately reached for his jean pockets and after officers repeatedly gave several commands for him to stop reaching for his pockets, they conducted a pat down.

TPD says during the pat down, the student lifted up his sweater to reveal a gun inside his front waistband. Officers then took the student to the ground, handcuffed him and secured the gun. Officers later ran the gun through the system to check if it was stolen, which is was not.

According to TPD, officers also searched the student’s locker where they found magazines, other weapons and drug/narcotic equipment which they took and booked as evidence.

TPD says the student was booked into the Juvenile Justice Center.
