Two Broward County teens are facing criminal charges of possessing firearms on school grounds following their arrest at Deerfield Beach High School on Monday.
According to Broward Sheriff’s Office investigators, around 2 p.m. on Jan. 29, a Broward County Public Schools security specialist noticed an individual asleep in a running car in the school’s parking lot. The school security specialist contacted her supervisor. The supervisor conducted an administrative search of the vehicle, located a handgun inside a backpack and immediately contacted the BSO school resource deputy.
A further investigation and search of the vehicle by BSO deputies revealed two loaded handguns, several loaded magazines, a drum magazine and illegal narcotics including MDMA, mushrooms and cannabis. BSO’s Threat Management Unit also responded to investigate.
The investigation has also revealed that one of the 17-year-olds arrested attends Deerfield Beach High School. The other individual, who was asleep in the car, does not.
Both teens were arrested and taken to the Juvenile Assessment Center for processing. They were arrested on charges including possession of a weapon on school property, possession of MDMA and possession with intent to sell, manufacture or deliver THC.
