Police Called to MHS over Weapon

Police were called to the campus of Meridian High School Monday morning, after a weapon was found in a vehicle.

There was no altercation, but two 17-year-old students were taken into custody by meridian police.

Principal Vicky Hood said the two students came to school in that vehicle Monday. She said she received a tip by phone that a weapon was in the car.

Hood said the district will follow its policy in administering punishment.

"It will not be tolerated at Meridian Public Schools," said Hood. "We want to keep a safe and orderly environment here. And we're going to, whatever measures that need to be taken in order for it to be safe, we'll take it here."

Again, the weapon was not displayed, but state law requires zero tolerance for weapons on school campuses.
