The Bainbridge Island Police Department was advised just before 11:00am on Friday of a juvenile who had reportedly taken two handguns from his home. Police responded to Bainbridge High School and the surrounding area to locate the student.
While it has been determined that the student traveled to school by bus, and was on campus between 8:22am and 8:46am, he was not found on campus at the time the incident was reported. As the search expanded, the student was located off campus by a family member who brought him to police at 11:20am. Both the handguns and ammunition were recovered at that time.
The 16-year-old was taken to the Kitsap County Juvenile Detention Facility for charges of unlawful possession of firearms and theft of firearms. Anyone with information related to this case is requested to contact Sergeant Gary Koon at (206) 842-5211.
