Two Sunnyside sixth graders at Sierra Vista Middle School were charged with possession of dangerous weapons and displaying them at school yesterday, Sept. 19.
School Resource Officer Sam Ramos responded to a call from school officials reporting knives in the possession of the two students.
According to Deputy Chief Phil Schenck, the knives displayed by the students, who are about 12 years of age, were a pocket knife and a butterfly knife, which is much like a switch blade knife and illegal to possess in public.
Schenck said police took the students out of school yesterday and released them to their parents.
