15-year-old arrested at New Hanover HS game on gun, drug charges

Tuesday, February 25th, 2014

WILMINGTON, NC (WWAY) — A 15-year-old accused of stealing a cell phone at a high school basketball game last night now faces gun and drug charges after deputies say he brought both on school grounds.

New Hanover County Sheriff’s Office spokesman Sgt. Jerry Brewer says it happened at the New Hanover High School basketball game, where deputies began questioning the teen about the stolen phone. That’s when Brewer says deputies smelled the odor of marijuana on the boy.

Sgt. Brewer says the teen told deputies he did not have the phone he was accused of stealing, though Brewer says they could see a phone sticking out of the teen’s pocket. Brewer says the teen then became uncooperative with deputies, so they detained him.

Deputies say they found both a pistol and heroin on the teen, along with the cell phone he was accused of stealing. Sgt. Brewer says the teen only faces the drug and weapon charges, though, because the victim of the theft decided not to press charges.

Investigators have not released the boy’s name because he is a minor.
