Mill Creek Student Arrested for Having Stun Gun on School Property

Two 17-year-old students searched upon returning to campus after an unexcused trip to Burger King.

A trip to a Dacula fast food restaurant led to the arrest of a junior on a weapons charge.

According a report by the school resource officer, Brent Taylor Voyles and Brandon David Green, both 17, were discovered returning to school on Jan. 20 “after being AWOL to the Burger King.”

An assistant principal searched both teens and reportedly discovered three Alprazolam tablets and a small amount of loose marijuana in Green’s possession. Voyles did not have any contraband on his person, but a stun gun was found during a search of his vehicle. Voyles and Green made the trip to Burger King in Voyles' 2005 Ford Explorer.

Voyles was booked into the Gwinnett County Jail on Jan. 25 on a charge of possessing a weapon within a school safety zone. He was released later that day on a $1,300 bond.

Green, a Mill Creek High School senior, had not been booked into the jail as of Jan. 26 but is listed as facing charges of marijuana possession and possession of a schedule IV narcotic in the school police report.

Of course. Two kids (out of what, nearly 4000) act out and it's the school's fault. Blame the school, not the kids. I expected better from you, R.

i go to MC. and while its not the worst school, its becoming alot worse than when i was a freshman. MANY freshman this year are sexually active, pills go through the school like nobodies business, and the atrium (center of the school) is impossible to get through because prolly 50 black kids (not being racist just stating a fact) crowd the area to get through to the stairs. it is still a much better school than places like dacula though, and to be hgonest while it does have all of these problems, i admit there is only so much around 6 or 7 AP's and one cop can do, but they do a good job with what they have. Mr. Varn, you subbed for osbourne right?

Mill Creek is a great school academically. People hear of students acting out because they are spooled brats who aren't afraid to be in trouble because their parents don't know how to discipline and blame the school, which is crap. Being one of the biggest high schools in GA, Mill Creek is going to have great accomplishments, but not all of its students are angels...just like every other high school. I went to Mill Creek and bad stuff does happen and some students do do bad things, but it is just is more noticeable due to its larger size only because the school is that much larger than any other. We also get millions of dollars in scholarships, students get full rides to colleges like Emory, UGA, Maryland, and Georgia Southern for academics and athletics. While some of the students of Mill Creek have less than perfect morals, the school itself is a great place to learn.
