Lexington Police say it started around 11 a.m. when an off-duty corrections officer says he saw three people break-in to a home on Lombardy Drive and then steal a pickup truck.

Police say they caught up with the driver and arrested him, but they were still looking for the other two suspects.

During that search, police say they stopped a potential suspect in the area, but decided he wasn’t involved.

They did find out he was a freshman at Bryan Station who admitted he had skipped out of school.

So the officer took him back to Bryan Station and during a routine search, school officials say they found an unloaded handgun in the student’s backpack.

“We never want any child to make a bad decision,” Mike Henderson, Bryan Station High School Principal, said, “But when they do make a bad decision then we need to have the protocol in place so that we can handle it with minimal disruption to the school day.”

Principal Henderson says Lexington Police arrested the student and are now trying to figure out if he was involved in the reported burglary and pickup truck theft.

Because of his age, the student’s name isn’t being released.
