MILLERSVILLE, Md. (WJZ) — Anne Arundel County Police were alerted Wednesday about a possible trespasser at Old Mill High School.
They reported to the school at 600 Patriot Lane in Millersville around 8:50 a.m.
School officials said they confronted a 14-year-old former student and an 18-year-old suspect, Baltimore resident Norman Hardy.
An investigation revealed Hardy entered the school near arrival time and went into a class while the 14-year-old remained outside.
Hardy stayed in the class briefly, left the class and was later met by school officials in the cafeteria.
He fled through an exit, leading the school to contact the school resource officer, who confiscated three knives, including two folding style “Buck” knives and a martial arts knife from Hardy’s backpack.
Both teens were taken into custody.
It is unclear why Hardy was carrying weapons, but it appears that he and the other teen both went to the school to socialize.
Investigators believe Hardy entered the school through a propped door near the weight room. School officials are investigating why that door was open.
The 14-year-old was charged on a juvenile citation with trespassing. Hardy was charged with the same citation, as well as two weapons violations.
