Student with weapons arrested at Arlington High School

ARLINGTON — Arlington Police responded from within Arlington High School at 2:47 p.m. on Wednesday, March 21, to a report of an individual on or near campus with a gun.

The city's School Resource Officer was contacted by students who reported an individual on campus with a gun. Arlington Police made contact with the individual on the sidewalk in front of the school, and discovered a compressed air pellet gun and an illegal knife in his possession.

The 18-year old man from Everett is being booked into the Marysville Municipal Jail for possession of an illegal knife. The man is a student at the Northwest Regional Learning Center, run by the Northwest Educational Service District 189, and housed at Weston High School, located on the 4400 block of 172nd Street in Arlington. It appears that the student typically takes a bus from Weston High School to Arlington High School and is then transported back to Everett.
