November 7, 2023 – School Resource Officers at Lebanon High School took a 16-year-old male student into custody this afternoon after a search of the student’s vehicle revealed a loaded 9mm handgun underneath the driver’s side seat.
After a serial number check was completed by the police’s communications division, the handgun was marked as stolen out of the city of Lebanon. A knife was also located in the vehicle. The student was immediately taken into custody and transported to Youth Services.
Despite the discovery of these weapons, the student in possession of them had made no known prior threats to any student or staff member at LHS. There is no active threat at Lebanon High School at this time. We continue to remain vigilant each day and we appreciate the working relationships we have with our school administrations.
