— Cumberland County Sheriff's deputies and Fayetteville police officers arrested two 18-year-olds Friday morning after finding guns in separate vehicles at Pine Forest High School. 

Fayetteville police came to the school, in the 500 block of Andrews Road, to arrest Angel Dickinson, of 3402 Carl Steiner Road, on an outstanding warrant for common law robbery.

While searching his vehicle, officers located a shotgun they said may have been used in a recent crime. His additional charges were not immediately available.

Cumberland County deputies arrested and charged Paul Algarin Jr., of 3952 Foster Drive, after finding a Ruger 380 under the front seat of his car. The gun had been reported stolen by the Lumberton Police Department. 

Authorities said Algarin recently withdrew from the school and should not have been on campus. 

Algarin is charged with carrying a concealed weapon, possessing a firearm on school property, trespassing and possessing a stolen weapon.

Both men were being processed at the Cumberland County jail Friday morning.

Cumberland County Schools Superintendent Frank Till said the school was never placed on lockdown during the searches because students weren't in danger.

According to its website, Pine Forest High School has about 1,700 students.

    I thought our state lawmakers just passed a law that allowed guns in cars at schools WRONG college campus and im sure they didnt mean shotguns from previous crimes

    Parents should wonder why these two over-legal-age criminals are allowed anywhere near a high school with guns in their vehicles.

    Guess all of those "gun free zone" signs don't work.

    Armed Staff / Security = Bad... Resource Officer = Good... Pretzel Logic speak for yourself dont speak for me because if they pull a gun in class we are suppose to take a bullet and not defend ourselves because of a rule that overides a constitutional right to protect yourself , if you dont want to ccw and let the government protect you thats fine but dont impose it on everyone not all of us what to be a statistic
