14-Year old Girl Accused of Bringing Loaded Gun to Carver Academy

Waterloo police have detained a 14-year old girl for bringing a loaded handgun to George Washington Carver Academy on Logan Avenue.

Authorities say there were no threats made and no evidence to suggest that the teen was going to use the weapon.  She was apparently preparing to run away and had put her brother’s gun , some marijuana, and  clothing into her backpack, before putting it into a locker at the school.

Police say someone tipped them off to the teen’s plans.
