TAMPA, Fla. – A 12-year-old Middle School student was arrested today for buying stun guns online, bringing them to school, and trying to make a profit.
On Friday afternoon, a staff member at Coleman Middle School alerted the administration that students were reporting 12-year-old Reese Cash had a stun-gun on the school campus.
The School Resource Officer removed the student from her class. She admitted to purchasing five electric stun-guns online and bringing them to school to sell to other students; further stating she had sold three stun-guns on February 25.
Today, Cash was found to be in possession of two black Vipertek stun-guns.
There was no threat made to any individual or the school itself. She was taken to the Juvenile Assessment Center, charged with Possession of a Weapon on School Property.
The three stun-guns reported to have been sold are still outstanding at the time of this report. However, the School Resource Officer has been in contact with the cooperative parents of the other students to search for and provide the items to the Tampa Police Department as evidence.
We will update this story as more information is released.
