Pellet gun, pot and a knife found in car of Rocky River student

Mint Hill Police have been busy at Rocky River High School. The school, which opened this year, has had one of the highest arrest rates in CMS in 2010-2011. On Tuesday, a school resource officer at Rocky River received an anonymous tip that a student had several weapons and marijuana in a vehicle that was parked on the campus of the school. The SRO notified school administrators and had the suspect brought to his office. Once there, the student was advised of the information that was received and escorted to his vehicle by the SRO and school administrators. A search of the vehicle was conducted and the SRO located  approximately 17.5 grams of marijuana, a pellet gun (which resembled a .45 caliber handgun), and a 12” Bowie Knife. The student, James M. Denton, was taken into custody and charged with two counts bringing a weapon onto school grounds and one count of Possession of Marijuana, both are misdemeanors.

  1. Build a higher fence around this place to keep the imates in and out of our community. Better yet, ship them back to Garringer where they belong.

  2. To Minty,

    A WHITE KID that went to BUTLER last year not Independence. Butler had their problems after all it was just covered up. Nice to know that Butler wasn’t as great as Butler and Mint Hill parents wanted the public to think.
