MOULTRIE — A Moultrie teenager was apprehended after he allegedly brought a pocket knife to school Monday morning.

William Pitts, 19, of 138 Lighter Knot Court, was charged with bringing a weapon onto school grounds.

A Moultrie police officer was called to the Vereen School on Greenwood Avenue about 8:45 a.m. Monday about a student with a knife. A second officer at the scene found a student, identified as Pitts, allegedly opening and closing a pocket knife while on school grounds.

Officers were able to get the knife away from Pitts, and he was placed under arrest. An officer searched his back pack for other weapons, but none were found. He did not threaten to harm himself or anyone else with the knife, police said.

Pitts’ parents were notified of the incident, and he was taken to Colquitt County Jail.
