Students bring pocketknife, ammunition to Perry County elementary school … – Patriot-News

CARROLL TWP. — Two elementary school students were found with a small pocketknife and ammunition during separate incidents at a Perry County school this week, according to state police.

State police are investigating an incident involving a student who reportedly was found with a small pocketknife Tuesday at Carroll Elementary School in Perry County, according to a state police news release.

Cpl. Kenneth Tallman with the state police in Newport said police are waiting to consult with Perry County District Attorney Chad Chenot about possible charges.

State police responded to the school Tuesday for the incident. School staff members had recovered the knife from the boy without any issues, according to the police news release.

On Wednesday, the school had a separate incident involving a 7-year-old student who was found with two rounds of ammunition, according to a police news release.

The boy didn’t have any firearms, according to the news release.

Tallman said that case is in the process of being closed and no charges will be filed.

The child’s age was a factor in that, Tallman said. Another factor, Tallman said, was that the ammunition didn’t fall under the definition of a weapon on school property under state law.

School officials from Carroll Elementary and West Perry School District couldn’t immediately be reached for comment.
