Student detained at Calaveras High
SAN ANDREAS — A Calaveras High School student was detained by authorities Tuesday after making comments about bringing a firearm to campus.
The Calaveras County Sheriff’s Office reported that during a discussion on lockdowns and school safety, the 15-year-old male was overheard making statements similar to “I guess I better not bring a gun that day.”
The same student is said to have been talking about the topic in another conversation. Calaveras High staff was made aware and notified deputies.
In the report, deputies confirmed that there was no specific threats made and the student did not possess any weapons.
Authorities arrested the student, removed him from campus and transported him to juvenile probation while notifying parents.
Deputies said inappropriate comments, whether students think they are a joke or made as a threat, will be taken seriously with serious consequences.
