Arrest Made At Harrison High School

Administrators were notified that a student may have a weapon in their vehicle, which was followed by a Harrison Police investigation.

(Harrison, Oh.) – An arrest has been made after a weapon was allegedly found in vehicle at Harrison High School.

Southwest Local Schools Superintendent John Hamstra sent out a letter to parents and guardians on Thursday afternoon stating that administrators were notified that a student may have a weapon in their vehicle on the high school campus.

A search was conducted by the school administration, and an investigation was conducted by Harrison Police.

As a result, an arrest was made, and the "contraband" was confiscated from the vehicle.

"At no point was the contraband inside the school building and there was never a direct threat made toward the school, students, or staff," said Hamstra. “We applaud students when they bring information like this to our attention."

Out of an abundance of caution, there will be an increased law enforcement presence on the high school campus on Friday.

No other information has been provided at this time.
