5 Fla. students accused of selling guns at school

STUART, Fla. (AP) — Five students at a private Christian high school in Florida are accused of selling stolen guns on campus.

The Martin County Sheriff’s office announced the arrests Tuesday. The suspects from Community Christian Academy in Stuart range in age from 15 to 17.

School officials received a tip that the teens were selling guns to other students at school and contacted authorities. Investigators determined that one teen burglarized a home several times and stole five weapons from a safe.

Detectives say four other students were involved in the sale of those guns as well as hundreds of rounds of ammunition, on and off campus. All the weapons have been recovered.

Charges include dealing in stolen property, possession of a firearm on school property and armed burglary.
