A 15-year-old student in Cleburne County is accused of carrying a handgun on a school bus.
The Cleburne County sheriff's office said deputies responded Friday to a Concord School District bus heading from school to the teen's home. Authorities found the teen on board and seized a handgun he had, according to a news release.
The teen was taken to the White River Juvenile Detention Facility on a preliminary charge of possession of a firearm on school property, a Class D felony, which is punishable by up to six years in prison and a $10,000 fine.
The teen's name was not released.
