JACKSON – Two Jackson Liberty High School students were taken into custody on Friday, June 1 for possession of a stun gun, according to police officials.
At around 10 a.m. on Friday, School Resource Officer John Pejoski received word that a student was in possession of a stun gun, also known as a CED or conducted energy device.
“Administrators were made aware of the incident and quickly located the student and the stun gun, which was a model which required the prongs to be placed in direct contact with a person to work,” according to Police Capt. Steven Laskiewicz.
One student was in possession of the stun gun and the other was responsible for bringing it into the school. Police then took the students into custody.
“The matter will be transferred to the Family Court,” said Laskiewicz.
Stun guns only recently became legal to own in New Jersey, but the state still prohibits minors from owning them.
