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.
