IREDELL COUNTY, NC (WBTV) - An 18-year-old was charged Thursday after he reportedly had a gun in his vehicle parked at a Iredell County school.
According to the Iredell County Sheriff's Office, school officials at West Iredell High School searched Jeremy David-Walker Langston's vehicle and found a loaded pistol on a holster.
Langston was charged with possessing a weapon on school grounds. Deputies said school officials wanted to search Langston's vehicle because he was being investigated for allegedly having a vaporizer on campus, which violates the school's Code of Conduct.
Deputies said the gun was never in the school and there was no threat to the campus.
The teen was taken to the Iredell County Detention Center and given a $25,000 bond.
