Today the Muskogee Police Department K-9 division along with Muskogee Police Department School Resource Officers were requested to do random searches of the exterior of vehicles in the parking lot of the school using police department K-9 officers.
During the course of those searches a K-9 indicated on a vehicle for the possibility of narcotics inside. The officers then notified the school staff and the student responsible for that vehicle was located. School staff then conducted a search of the vehicle and a green leafy substance was found inside, along with a firearm. At that time school resource officers took the student into custody without any further incident.
The student arrested was identified as 18 year old Bryce Barrett. Barrett was booked into the Muskogee County Jail on the charges of possession of a firearm on school grounds, and possession of marijuana.
