A senior at Hillsboro High was arrested after police say a loaded handgun and marijuana was recovered from a car in the school’s parking lot.
According to a release, police were investigating a separate case of illegal drug activity when they saw a digital scale with marijuana residue in the center console of a 2008 Dodge Charger.
Police said the loaded gun, a .25 caliber, was found in the driver side door panel and nearly 30 grams of marijuana was recovered from the driver side floorboard.
Authorities determined 18-year-old Edwin Brodnax was the person who drove the car onto school grounds.
He is charged with marijuana possession with intent to seel, gun possession during the commission of a felony and unlawful drug paraphernalia.
He is being held in lieu of a $5,000 bond.
