CLAYTON, N.C. — A Cleveland High School student was taken into custody Thursday after school leaders found a handgun in his book bag, Johnston County Schools spokeswoman Tammy Amaon said Saturday.

Authorities called the student, a 15-year-old boy, to the office to investigate a tip that he had marijuana. They found the handgun along with a small amount of the drug in a search of his bag. 

Amaon said the student was turned over to law enforcement the same afternoon.
